So here is that pasta maker that I got at a yard sale for $3....two years ago. I can remember how excited I was to get it. It came with no instructions but I looked up pasta making on the Internet and found a great page and printed up the instructions. I believe over the last two years I have printed instructions a couple of times. I really can't say why I never got around to trying it but this year seems to be the year for trying new things and the pasta maker was past due.
To make 1 pound of pasta you just need one cup of flour and 2 eggs (that in itself is pretty amazing). You put your flour on your cutting board and make a well in the center.
You then knead the dough. It is pretty much the same way you would knead bread by pushing the palm of your hand into the dough. You are supposed to knead it 8 minutes (umm, yeah, sure I did) adding a little flour as needed.
