    My XMAS present was the Kitchen Aid Pasta roller and cutters. I tried it out today and it worked really well. The dough handled well and the texture was great .... BUT the pasta was very very bland.

    I used the recipe in the manual - so I probably need to branch out a bit. I salted the pasta water with 2 teaspoons of salt - but maybe I needed more.

    Any suggestions ? I am going to cross post into the recipe request forum.

    I am not familiar with the pasta dough recipe that came with your machine, so I cannot compare it to my grandmother's recipe.

    This is the pasta dough recipe we have always used (for pasta, ravioli. and lasagne).

    Since you will be using a machine and not rolling the dough out by hand, omit the last step and follow your machine directions for rolling the dough.

    Don't forget to let your pasta (or ravioli) dry for an hour or so before cooking it.

    Nana's Pasta Dough

    3 cups unbleached white flour
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    2 eggs
    1/2 cup water

    Sift flour and salt together.

    Place flour mixture on a board, making a well in the center of the flour.

    Drop eggs into the flour well, using your hand or a fork, break the yolks and beat eggs slightly.

    Combine the eggs and flour together, gradually adding enough warm water to make a stiff dough.

    Knead dough well, until smooth; cover the dough and let it rest for 15 minutes.

    Cut dough in half and roll each half of the dough out on a floured board, into a very thin sheet (about 1/16 to 1/8 inch thick).

    Congratulations, Patti!

    I'm still collecting all the necessary pieces for the pasta attachments. I've got the grinder and the pasta press, so next will be the rollers.

    We've had several threads on pasta makers here, but the recipes duonyte suggested have been tossed around before, so I'd definitely give those a try. icon_smile.gif
