So I have a pasta machine I've only used once. My friend Jeanne and I planned a day where we just pulled out some pasta recipes and played. We had a few recipes. We started with a basic flour, egg, water combo. 1cup flour, 1 egg, 1 Tbsp. of water. We ended up adding ?4 Tbsp. water. We thought this was the hardest. Kneading, even with a Kitchen Aid mixer/ dough hook was tough.
Then we tried Semolina flour, egg, oil and water. Then flour, sour cream, chive and water. Finally we did Italian seasoning, 1/4 cup sour cream and 1cup flour. The sour cream was by far the easiest to work with.
We also tried some spaghetti. It was very thin, but very good. The most important thing to remember is NOT to was the pasta machine, not even a damp cloth. It was rust and ruin. Just let it dry and brush/shake.
