Preparation time 20mins
Cooking time 150mins
Measure flour into bowl; make a well in center and add egg yolks, whole egg and salt. With hands, thoroughly mix egg into flour. Add water, 1 tbsp. at a time, mixing thoroughly after each addition. (Add only enough water to form dough into ball).
Turn dough onto well-floured cloth-covered board; knead until smooth and elastic, about 10 minutes. Cover; let rest for 10 minutes.
Divide dough into 4 equal parts. Roll dough, 1 part at a time, into paper-thin rectangle, keeping remaining dough covered. Roll rectangle around rolling pin; slip out rolling pin.
Cut dough crosswise into 1/8" strips for narrow noodles and 1/4" strips for wide noodles. Shake out strips and place on towel to dry. about 2 hours.
When dry, break dry strips into smaller pieces. Cook in 3 quarts boiling salted water (1 tbsp. salt) for 12 - 15 minutes or until tender. Drain thoroughly.
