Homemade Spaghetti Noodles
Making the Dough
4 cups of all purpose flour
2 tsp salt
4 large eggs
1. In a bowl mix the four cups of flour and the 2 tsp salt.
2. Create a well in the flour mixture for the eggs.
3. in a separate bowl crack the four eggs and scramble with a whisk.
4. Slowly pour the eggs into the well of the flour mixture.
5. Using a fork, slowly mix the flour with the egg.
6. The dough will begin to get hard and you’ll want to continue mixing and working the dough with your hands until it’s mixed well. (It is not possible to over mix this dough.)
Creating the Noodles:
1. Break of small pieces of the dough and place them in the chute at the top of the pasta extruder.
2. Turn your Kitchen Aid mixer on high and push down on the dough inside the pasta extruder with a spoon or the tool that comes with the attachment.
3. The first patch will take awhile so be patient.
4. Once the homemade spaghetti noodles are at the desired length, just cut them off.
5. Place them on a lightly floured cookie sheet in the shape of a nest.
6. Freeze for at least 20 minutes before use.
Cooking the Noodles
I don’t have a definite cook time because I make all batch sizes. Basically I place the frozen homemade spaghetti noodles in the boiling water and watch it until they’re done. They cook fast so it isn’t a big deal to do this.
You may have to use a fork to work the noodles out of their nests and to promote detaching from each other.
Here’s where you’ll need the right tool for the job.
Of course, you’re welcome to roll the dough flat and cut noodles with a knife, but they won’t turn out like real homemade spaghetti noodles without this little lovely.

I promise it’s worth it because it comes with attachments to make macaroni, rigatoni, and more!
How to Store the Homemade Spaghetti Noodles.
Put your noodles in the freezer while they’re still on the cookie sheet. After about 20-30 minutes you can take them off and place them in an airtight container. We keep ours in the freezer. I don’t thaw my noodles before placing in the bowling water either.
