Directions

  1. For noodles: Put flour in a medium bowl, make a well in center, and add eggs. Mix well. Add water 1 tablespoon at a time, until dough is stiff but easy to roll.

  3. Cut into 1/4 to 1/2 inch strips, about 3-5 inches long. Let sit for 5-10 minutes.
  4. For soup: In a large pot, add water and chicken broth; bring to a boil.
  5. Add noodles a few at a time to water and chicken broth mixture. Bring the soup back to a boil.
  6. Add chicken, vegetables, and pepper. Boil for 12-15 minutes or until noodles are tender. Serve warm.
  7. Refrigerate or freeze within 2 hours.

Notes

  • Broth can be canned or made using bouillon. For each cup of broth use 1 cup very hot water and 1 teaspoon or 1 cube bouillon.
  • Try whole wheat flour to include whole grains.
