    I'd like to make and give fresh pasta. I'll be mailing most of it so I'm concerned about how to dry it so it doesn't get moldy. And how to package it so they don't end up with pasta chips! Of course I've never made pasta before and I'll need lot's of it! A friend loaned me an electic pasta maker so I won't be hand cranking.

    I would let it dry overnight, then pack it in layers, separate the layers with waxed paper or parchment, then cover each layer of pasta in cornmeal. That is what I do with my ravioli when I freeze them.
    The cornmeal keeps them from sticking together, and will absorb any moisture from the freezer. Unfortunately, the cornmeal will add to the shipping weight.

    Do a trial run to be sure....make a small batch of pasta, let it dry overnight, then pack it with the cornmeal, it in a tightly sealed plastic bag/container. Check it in a week or so (or whatever the shipping time is) and see if there is any mold....there shouldn't be.
