Pasta machine usage.

1 - cup flour
1 - large egg
Salad oil preferably olive oil. Just enough.

Mix all till homogeneous

Flatten pasta thin enough to go into the machine. Run though at widest level.

Fold into thirds to make a square. keep doing this until it is square.

The feed though the dough slowly decreasing the width till you can see though the dough. Add flour as needed to keep the dough semi-dry.

Feed the flattened pasta into one of the pasta cutters so it becomes noodles.  Some people just use a knife. Add a little flour to keep the noodles separated.

Boil several minutes till done and all the noodles have floated to the top.

Drain and then add sauce of choice.  Melted butter and sage is one simple sauce.

Hand made shapes:

Udon noodles:

When you get the dough to desired thickness, fold dough in thirds (like a letter fold) and slice into 1/8″ thick noodles.
