Homemade Lasagna Noodles

Homemade Lasagna Noodles

Basically, all you need to do is to knead and roll the dough. It's a lot cheaper to make the noodles than to buy them. It's a lot of fun since you can use the same dough to make broad pasta noodles or ravioli (the dough in the photo has been rolled out and folded).

Ingredients: An easy-to-make amount

Semolina flour
300 g
70-100 ml
2 teaspoons


1. Combine the semolina flour and egg in a bowl. Gradually add the water a little at a time and knead into dough. Once the dough comes together and the surface becomes smooth, cover it with plastic wrap and let it rest in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
2. Dust the dough with the flour from Step 1 (either semolina or bread flour, not listed), and evenly roll it out to a 1-2 mm thickness with a rolling pin. Cut the dough into desired sizes or shapes (if it is for lasagna, cut it into rectangles or squares).
3. In a pot of boiling water, add the salt and vegetable oil or olive oil (to prevent noodles from sticking to each other), boil the noodles 3-5 minutes after they rise to the surface. The boiling time will vary depending on the thickness of the noodles.
4. The lasagna is ready to be served.
5. Cut it into thick noodles to make fettuccine.

Story Behind this Recipe

I couldn't find a store around my house that carries lasagna noodles, so I just decided to make my own.
