You can make pasta dough whenever you have time.
You will be surprised by its chewiness.

Ingredients: 4 servings

Cake flour
100 g
Bread (strong) flour
100 g
Eggs
2
Salt
a small amount
Olive oil
1 teaspoon

1. (The 1st day) Add the dry ingredients in a bowl, make a well in the center and drop in the eggs. Beat the eggs, add the salt and olive oil and mix with the dry ingredients until incorporated.
2. Transfer the dough onto a flat surface and knead the dough with both hands for about 10 minutes.
3. Knead until the surface of the dough is smooth and shiny, wrap it with plastic wrap, and let it rest in the refrigerator over night.
4. (The 2nd day) Remove the plastic wrap and roll out the dough with a rolling pin. Roll it to both vertically and horizontally until 1-2 mm thick.
5. Cut the dough in half, either loosely roll it up or fold it, and cut into 1 cm width strips.
6. Pull and stretch the noodles one piece at a time and dust with flour (not listed). Divide into 1 serving portion each. You can wrap it with plastic wrap and store it in the freezer as well.

8. Add 8 g of salt per 1 liter of boiling water and cook the noodles for about 3 minutes. Adjust the cooking time according to your preferred toughness.
9. The dough was kneaded with cooked and chopped spinach in the noodles.
