Sourdough Noodles

Here is my little pot of sourdough starter that lives in the refrigerator:



Before I went to bed last night, I combined the following:

1/2 cup sourdough starter
3 eggs
1.5 cups whole wheat flour
1.5 teaspoons salt

Stir that well, cover with plastic wrap and let it rest all night.

In the morning, knead the dough, with a little unbleached all-purpose flour for 2 minutes.

Divide into 8 pieces:



Bring 5 quarts of water to a rolling boil and add 2 Tablespoons salt:



Of course, you can cut these out by rolling out with a rolling pin and cutting them with a pizza cutter, but this time, I used my handy-dandy pasta machine. First, I rolled the dough pieces through on #1, then on #3.



Lastly, on #4. I tried #5, but that was too thin.



Here are some of the noodles, waiting for the water to boil:



And here is my granddaughter, cutting the noodles for me with the pasta machine:



This is what they look like coming off of the machine:



I added them to the boiling water and cooked them for about 4 minutes, with 2 Tablespoons of extra-virgin olive oil added to the water, and then drained them in a big colander:



Here are two little videos. One is of the boiling noodles, and the other shows you how I knead the dough

These noodles are delicious, by the way. We ate some with grated cheese and they were wonderful. They would also be good with pasta sauce or in soups or....
