If you make homemade fresh pasta, making Asian egg noodles is easy. However, if you have never made pasta, making egg noodles is a lot simpler than you might think.

Making fresh noodles is a 2-step process, making dough and turning dough into noodles. I rely on my pasta bike that I bought 15 years ago from the North End, an Italian neighborhood in Boston. Like most pasta machines, it has a stainless steel body that rolls the dough into a thin sheet and an attachment that cuts the sheet into strands. It comes with a hand crank, a table clamp and a few other small pasta tools. The pasta machine was a good investment for me; I have made both Asian noodles and Italian pasta for years. Down the line, if you have kids coming to your house, it's another fun project to make pasta together.
