3 c dry curd cottage cheese
1 egg
2 tsp salt
6 sliced green onions
2 tsp pepper
2 tsp sugar or splenda (or less to taste)

4 c all purpose flour
4 eggs
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp oil
3 tbsp water if needed

1 c of cold water

1/4 c butter
6 sliced green onions
3 slices of bread

1 Large pot of water

1. Filling
Combine the ingredients for the filling and set aside. If you can not find dry curd cottage cheese. Use a yogurt maker and put 3 cups of small curd cottage cheese in the yogurt strainer, let drain for at least 24 hours and that should remove most of the water.
Set aside the filling.

2. Dough
Combine the flour and eggs in your favorite stand mixer using the dough hook attachment and start on a slow speed, as the dough starts forming increase speed. Add the water if needed. Once all the dough is combined use the mixer to kneed it for a couple minutes.
Remove it from the mixer and wrap it in plastic wrap and refrigerate so it can rest for a couple hours.
You could also do this ahead of time and keep in the refrigerator for a few days.

3. Put you large pot of water on the hear and bring it to boil.
4. Remove the dough from the refrigerator and divide it into 4 parts
5. Using your favorite stand mixer now with the pasta roller on it start running it through the roller starting at the wide setting and rolling it until it is pastry thin, not paper thin.
