    We have a ton of pullet eggs that are stacking up. Does anyone have a recipe for noodles that the egg amount is based on volume instead of a certain number of eggs?

    Pullet eggs, does this mean they are smaller than an average LARGE store bought egg ?? We have bantams and our eggs are smaller. When using them I use 3 bantam eggs instead of 2 store eggs. More or less. But for noodles it doesn't matter that much. Using all purpose or bread flour use the "plenty" method (as Mario Bitali calls it.

    http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/mario-batali/fresh-pasta-recipe/index.html

    His recipe calls for 3 1/2 cups all purpose flour and 4 EXTRA Large eggs (or the 8 of your pullet eggs)


    Follow the process in the link above, putting a mound of flour on your work surface, dig a well in the middle, break the eggs in one at a time and with your finger tips swirl flour into the middle combining eggs with flour. As you keep breaking eggs and swirling flour you'll find there's a point where the dough comes together enough you can start kneading it. That's the "plenty" point. For your eggs it could be 7 eggs, 8 or maybe even 9... You'll do fine. Nothing like fresh pasta.
