Chicken Noodle Soup

This is Chad's Mom's Recipe.  It's SO YUMMY!  I didn't realize homemade noodles were so good... and easy!

11-12 c chicken broth
3 c. cooked, cubed chicken (or turkey)
2 c. chopped celery
1 1/2 c chopped carrots 
1/4 c. dried onions, or 1 med. onion, chopped
2 1/2 tsp parsley flakes
1 tsp basil
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes

Cook all in boiling chicken broth until tender.

Noodles:  (I just make half the batch of noodles, because I feel like there are way too many if I do all of them, but you can decide.)
2 eggs
2 Tbs water
1 tsp salt
1 - 1 1/2 c. flour (approx)

Beat eggs and water well.  Add salt.  Stir into this egg mixture enough flour to make a soft dough ball.  (1 to 1 1/2 c)  Take out of bowl and roll out on a layer of flour (up to another 1/2 c. flour...use enough to lightly cover the dough and make it easy to roll out. You don't want it to stick to the counter).  Roll dough thin into a rectangle shape.  Cut into 4" wide noodles (or however you want).  Cook noodles in the soup 10-15 min.
