What you will need
4 tsp baking soda (12g)
1/2 cup warm water
1/2 cup cold water
3 cups AP Flour (400g)
How to cook
Bake baking soda
Spread baking soda on a baking sheet and bake at 250f for an hour. This increases the alkalinity of the baking soda. It's fine to make extra here, It stores well.
Dissolve baking soda
Whisk the baked baking soda into warm water.
Add cold water and flour
Add cold water and flour. Mix with the dough hook.
Knead, then rest
Knead for 5 minutes. Cover loosely and rest for 20 minutes.
Knead and chill
Knead for 5 minutes again. Wrap the dough in plastic and store in the fridge for at least an hour.
Prep for rolling
Slice off a chunk of dough and press it flat. Open your pasta roller to it's widest setting.
Roll and cut
Crank your dough through the roller. Fold it and run it through again. Continue this, reducing the width of the dough until it's the thickness you want your noodles to be.
Run your dough strips through the cutter. Most of these pasta rollers have a fettuccine cutter and a spaghetti cutter. Use the spaghetti size.
To cook, just boil in salted water for about 3 minutes, then strain and add to broth or a stir fry. The noodles also freeze well for longer storage.
