Homemade Egg Noodles

I have been covered up in eggs here recently. What better way to use them than homemade egg noodles?

6c Semolina flour
6 large eggs
water as needed

I ground the durum wheat berries and measured the flour out into a large bowl. I made a well in the middle for the eggs and whisked them up to beat them a bit then started mixing in the flour. 

Knead by hand until smooth. I had to add a couple tablespoons of water to get the right consistency. 

Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and continue kneading until smooth. Cover with plastic wrap and let rest about 10 minutes. 

Then it's time to run it though the pasta maker.
Be sure to flour the sheet of dough before you cut it into noodles or the noodles will stick together. 
Toss the noodles in a bit more flour to keep them separated. Cook immediately, freeze, or allow to dry. 

They took about 8 minutes to cook up tender.
