A few months ago, I finally got up the gumption to use the pasta maker I got for my birthday a couple of years ago, with able assistance from my husband.
The dough is very simple: flour and eggs (with water if you need extra liquid). It doesn’t even have salt!
It needs to be rolled through the pasta maker at least 6 times before you actually put it through the attachment which cuts it. You add flour each time, and it starts looking less like a ragged strip of playdoh and more like food.
It was quite fun to work the crank and feed the dough into the machine. When we were done with that part, we put the dough through the fettuccine attachment. It only took 3 1/2 minutes to cook it, and it was delicious! I might cook it longer next time, though.
We have since used it to make lasagna noodles. We are still figuring things out, but are pretty pleased with the results so far.
If you adore pasta and like cooking, I recommend trying this out. 😃
