Homemade Egg Noodles

2 cups flour
1/4 tsp salt
2 medium eggs
1/4 cup water

In a large bowl combine the flour and salt.  Make a hole in the flour, like a well.  Crack the eggs into the hole.  Using your hands or large spoon make the eggs and flour together making a coarse and crumbly mixture.  add the water.  Mix again until you have a nice, stiff dough.  Knead the dough a few minutes to get it nice and smooth.  You may need to dust it with a little flour to keep it from sticking to your hands.  When you are satisfied with your ball of noodle dogh cover it with a tea towel and let it rest for about 20 minutes  This is to relzs the gluten in the dough making it easier to roll out.

Use a rolling pin and a floured surface roll dough out real thin, as the noodles will poof our when they cook.  Cut into strip or the shape you want.  Let the noodles rest and dry for about 20- 30 minutes.  Cook in a broth thats boiling and then reduce to simmer for 25-30 minutes.
