"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Ingredients:  
2 cups flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 eggs
1 tablespoon milk
1 teaspoon olive oil
3 1/2 quarts water
1 1/2 lbs chicken breasts
1/2 chopped onion
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
2 bay leaves
1/2 cup milk
2 tablespoons butter

Directions:
Directions:
Mix flour and 1/4 tsp salt thoroughly and place on the counter, or a pastry board, making a well in the center. Place eggs, 1 tbsp milk, and olive oil in a large bowl and whisk until smooth. Slowly add egg mixture to well in flour and mix together. Knead dough for about 10 minutes until a smooth, slightly elastic dough is formed. Cut dough into three pieces and cover with plastic wrap. Allow to sit about 15 minutes. On a floured counter top, roll dough out as thin as possible without tearing. Using a pizza cutter, cut noodles about 1/4- 1/2 inch wide. Cover noodles loosely with plastic wrap and set aside. Place water, chicken, onion, salt, pepper, and bay leaves in a large pot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium high and allow to simmer about 1 1/2 hours. Remove chicken and bay leaves from broth and discard bay leaves. Allow chicken to sit until cool enough to handle. When cool enough, shred chicken into coarse pieces. Add milk and butter to broth and return to a rolling boil over high heat. Add chicken to broth, then add noodles, separating any that may stick. Cook soup over high heat 15-20 minutes, stirring regularly. Remove from heat and allow to sit about 5-10 minutes (it will thicken). Serve alone, or I like to serve ladled over mashed potatoes.
