Ingredients

2 large eggs
1/2 cup soy flour
1/2 tsp salt

2 tbsp soy flour
3 qts water
1 1/2 tsp salt


Directions

Beat eggs thoroughly with a fork or wire whisk.



Add soy flour and salt and mix well.



Place a large sheet of waxed paper on a flat surface, or use a wooden board if you have one.



Sift a tiny amount of the extra soy flour all over the waxed paper or board. Place the dough on the waxed paper, making sure that all surfaces, top and bottom, get a light coating of the soy flour (you can use high gluten wheat flour here as well for a few carbs extra.)



Roll out the dough with a rolling pin until very thin. (The French rolling pins without handles work best here.)



Try to roll the dough into a rectangular shape. Work fast!



Beginning with the narrow end, gently fold over about 2 inches of dough and continue turning like a jelly roll until the roll is about 3 inches thick.



Dough should be dry enough so layers do not stick together, but should not have a heavy coating of extra soy flour.



With a very sharp knife, cut rolled dough in even slices - 1/4 inch wide for fettuccine and as desired for other pasta (wide noodles for gravy mixtures should be cut about 1/2 inch wide.)



Unroll strips carefully so as not to break them, and arrange on waxed paper, keeping flat. The noodles may be left to dry for 1-2 hours, or cooked immediately.



To cook, bring water to a rolling boil. Add salt and put in the pasta, pushing it down gently until all is submerged in the water. (A little oil added will keep the pasta from sticking.)



Cook to the *al dente* stage, testing frequently to make sure the pasta does not overcook. (*Al dente* means tender but still firm to bite.)



Drain pasta thoroughly in a colander and use it with your favorite pasta recipe
