Well, I just made a liar out of myself!  Dug out the booklet that came with the pasta machine, and sure enough, almost all the recipes with it include eggs!  Maybe it was a friend's machine booklet I was looking at, or one of those food network chefs??  I dunno now!

What it did say is to let the pasta air dry for one hour, then dust with flour and form into “nests.”  Said it was not necessary to separate the strands but to freeze them in air tight containers.

Well I was all excited and forgot about the nests!  I used 1/2 of the recipe for spaghetti tonight and the rest are all cut up into noodle size now!  I put them in the fridge to have tomorrow.

But thank you for looking that up for me!  More than I could find online.

Cindy… before you decide that you must cut out all eggs from your diet… I found this…

Also someone mentioned freezing perogies… we don't cook ours before freezing them.  We just lay them out in a single layer on lightly floured wax paper spread on cookie sheets.  We use blocks between the cookie sheets and stack them in the deep freeze.  Once they are frozen through, we put them in one gallon freezer bags and then we can count out however many we need for each meal depending on how many people are eating and what other things we are serving with them.  To cook them, we drop the frozen perogies into boiling water… when they all float, they're done.

I'm mostly a lurker here, but wanted to thank you all for the great advice.  Last night for dinner, I made home made chicken and noodles for the first time.  YUM!  WV/SE OH chicken and noodles are different than what I grew up with – when we made noodles, it was for a soup – here the chicken and noodles are more of a side dish or even main dish – but not so much a soup – thicker & heartier.  I was so impressed with myself that I wanted to make more to freeze.  And lo and behold, you all have solved my problem.  Thanks.  Tammy
