Today Donald and I used a pasta recipe from Mario Batali which calls for two ingredients: flour and eggs. I did the initial mixing, then divided the dough into two sections so both Donald and I could knead. After the kneading was done we set the dough aside to rest.
I clamped the machine to the table and turned the dial to the widest setting while Donald divided the dough into sections. We took turns feeding each section through the machine several times, then began to roll them thinner by turning the dial to progressively narrower settings. We were having so much fun that Hubby Tony got in on the act, too.

The noodles were thick and chewy, almost like an egg noodle dumpling. It was very good, but next time we'll choose to roll it thinner. And according to Donald, there will be a next time!
