1. Hand whisk together the flour, gluten and tapioca in your stand mixer bowl. Fit it with the dough hook.
2. In a small cup, add water, salt and baking soda. Mix well until dissolved.
3. Slowly drizzle in water, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed, mix at the lowest speed until the dough comes together into a shaggy dough.
4. Transfer the dough out to a floured surface and knead by hand. Shape it into a rough ball. Cover with plastic wrap and let it sit for about 1 hour.
5. Divide into 6 equal pieces on the work surface. Cover loosely with plastic wrap. Do not worry if the dough is not smooth at this stage.
6. Fit the Pasta Roller onto the KitchenAid mixer. Set it to position 1 (thickest). Flatten by hand one dough piece into a rough rectangle about 1.5 cm thick. Process at speed 1 and slowly feed one piece of dough through the Roller. Feed it through again several times until the dough is silky and smooth. You may fold it in half before running it through. It takes me about 10 times or more usually. In the beginning the dough will be ragged. As you continue, after more runs, it will get silky and smooth alright.
7. Once the dough is smooth, turn dial to the next thickness setting 2 and run the dough through once or twice. Repeat (once or twice) at each following position until you reach setting 4 or 5. Roll out the dough to your desired thickness.

Boil the noodles according to the directions on the package. When the noodles are done, drain and rinse thoroughly with cold water, using your hands to agitate the noodles. Drain well. Toss the noodles with 1~2 tsp of vegetable oil (or sesame oil) to keep the noodles from sticking together.
