Don't forget to stir

Do not add oil to the water

Adding oil can prevent pasta from sticking together, but you shouldn't do this if you plan to add sauce later.

Sprinkle fresh noodles with flour

When making homemade pasta, it is important to use a lot of flour. It is important to sprinkle flour on the noodles before and after cutting.

Use plenty of water
