This is a really good dish and plus is vegetarian. Is easy to make but it take a lot of patience to do. It always turn out good if you use good ingredient, especially organic eggs and milk.

(With 2 eggs and 200g of flour I made more noodles than how many I used, but 1 egg and 100g of flour is not enough...)

-mix the flour and the eggs in a bowl;
-make the noodles like for the lasagnas in the pasta machine and cut them in 25/30cm segments (start to make thicker noodles, than thiner one, until you make them in the thinest of the pasta machine regulation. Fold in half the noodles you make each time and pass twice for each regulation. Fold edges of noodles when not straight);
-place the lasagnas in a flat dish divided by some flour, so they don't stick to each other.

(Please look at the photos too or I will need to take an english class!)
