...she would lightly dust with flour and roll them up like a scroll. She used a sharp knife to cut across the short end, adjusting the amount she cut off to get the width noodle she wanted.
Oh, and she just put a few cups of flour on the board, made a well in the center and cracked a few eggs (and maybe a couple of egg yolks extra). Eggs go in the well and you stirred them up with spread fingers while incorporating flour from the edges of the well. When the dough came together, she would knead it until smooth, then let it rest under a towel for a few minutes before rolling out.
