  • After you take it out of the bowl, knead again.
  • Cut a piece of dough off of ball, flatten and begin to feed into the roller part of the macaroni machine set on a wide setting
  • Lay this strip on a little flour and continue cutting a piece off and rolling till the whole ball of dough is finished.
  • Turn the dial so the rollers are closer together.
  • Roll all of your strips through the roller again.
  • Repeat this process till you acheeve the thickness you desire.
  • Move the lever to the desired blade you would like your pasta cut. (ex.) Angel hair to Fettachini.
  • As you cut each strip, lay the past on a lightly floured surface.
  • You may also wish to freeze pasta for another time.
  • We use styrofoam trays and put about a pound of pasta on each tray.
  • When you are ready to cook, take right from the freezer to boiling water.
  • Fresh pasta does not take long to cook.

Notes

My grandmother always made homemade pasta every week, my dad did also, but my uncle Gene actually had a recipe that was written out. This recipe is for mulitple amounts of eggs and flour. Make the one that fits your needs.
