This recipe for Puffy Cheese Noodles has been in my recipe folder for a long time. I don't even remember where it came from, because it is simply scratched onto a piece of paper, with no reference of origin. You know, sometimes these recipes jotted down on paper and saved are the best in the world! 
This is exactly one of those recipes...

This recipe is perfect for small families, but if you study the recipe you notice the finished size for rolling out the dough, is part of the plan. The noodle dough rolled out to a certain size, guarantees that the noodles won't be too thick. To make more noodles just make more dough, you will want to remember to roll each (recipe portion size) ball of dough, individually, to maintain the correct thickness.

Puffy Cheese Noodles is a great recipe to make with your favorite little people because the smaller amount of dough is easy to handle. Also making it the perfect recipe for smaller families...

1 egg
1 T milk

3/4 c flour
1/4 c Parmesan cheese
1 t baking powder
1/4 t salt

Combine the dry ingredients in a small bowl, combine the egg and milk in another. Beat the egg and milk together until well mixed. Dump the dry ingredients into the wet, use a fork and combine well. This is a stiff dough against the fork. Do not add any additional liquid. You may need to use your hands to work all the dry ingredients into the dough.

Turn the dough out onto a floured surface. Knead 10 - 12 times. Shape it into a disk shape. This step will make the dough easier to roll out.

Roll the dough out into a (roughly) 12X12 shape. This size keeps the thickness of the noodle correct. 

Sprinkle with a bit more flour and rub gently over the surface.

This is an important step; although the dough feels stiff, it has a lot of moisture. Sorry for the poor quality photo, pasta dough on a white pastry cloth is how things go, some days!

Roll the dough up like a jelly roll and cut into 1/4 inch slices. So not a good photo, but it helps to show what your rolled and cut dough should look like.

Unroll onto a clean towel and let dry.

You can cook them after drying or break in half for easy storage and freeze.

When ready to cook, bring a large pan of water to boil, add 1 T salt to the water.

Boil uncovered for 8 - 10 minutes. Drain and serve.

As a side dish, toss with butter or top with a sauce. You might also enjoy the following:

Garlic and Brown Butter Sauce
by the seat of my pants!

2 T butter
1 clove garlic minced
1/4 c fresh minced parsley
additional Parmesan cheese

Saute the garlic in 1 T of the butter until golden and soft. Remove from pan and set aside. Add remaining butter and gently brown the butter over low heat. Remove pan from heat, return the sauteed garlic and the parsley.

Combine and toss with the drained noodles. Sprinkle with additional Parmesan Cheese and serve.
