Measure flour onto clean work surface. Make a well in the center and add egg yolks, whole egg and salt. With hands, thoroughly mix egg into flour. Add water, 1 tablespoon at a time, mixing thoroughly after each addition. (Add only enough water to form dough into a ball.) Turn dough onto well-floured board; knead until smooth and elastic, about 10 minutes. Cover; let rest 10 minutes.
Divide the dough into 2 pieces and work with one half of the dough at a time. On a well-floured surface roll out the dough to the desired thickness from 1/4-inch to paper-thin, the thickness is up to you! Flour your work area as needed to keep dough from sticking. Use sharp knife of pizza cutter to cut in strips as wide or narrow as you like but keep the width uniform so they'll all cook happily ever after.
Boil the noodles in 3 quarts of water with a tablespoon of salt until they are as tender as you like them and use in soups or stews are serve as a side dish with butter and cheese or both!
