      My husband surprised me tonight with a new pasta attachment for my Kitchen aid and i needed a recipe to try out my new gadget. I followed the recipe exactly as written (but i doubled the batch as my mixer was too big to handle a single batch) . This was a very VERY good and simple recipe. The pasta was light and fluffy and tasty.

      Great recipe. After I added the 3 eggs I thought the dough was to dry so I added a fourth egg. Bad idea! Just follow Diana's directions, they are perfect. I used the pasta to make Papardelle for Pappardelle Bolognese Con Verdure and just to add a little bit of color and a touch of flavor I added some Turmeric and paprika to the flour. Thanks for posting.

      i did it the old fashioned way of kneading by hand. i then used a hand-cranked pasta machine to cut to spaghetti. the result was a very 'bouncy' noodle that soaked up the sauce very well. bravo
