Play dough is one of our favorite kiddo activities. If there is a dull moment in our house, the kids beg to get the color-filled tubs of doughy fun down from hiding. I’ve figured out a way to get my kids to enjoy play dough, and make our dinner – at the same time! We have begun making our own pasta noodles. Be careful, this is an addictive recipe both for it’s fun and the yummy meal.
Pasta Noodle Recipe:
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 cup sour cream
2-3 tablespoons of olive oil
After the dough has “sat” overnight, it becomes more elastic (much less “stiff”). Knead and play with the dough. The more it is played with the better your noodles will be!
Form noodles by making dozens and dozens of “little worms”. You can also roll the dough out into a sheet and cut the noodles out in thin strips.
These homemade noodles are a great staple in homemade soups or as the starch in pasta primavera! Our kids love to eat them with caramelized onions, along with fried cabbage and ground pork.
