  • Let the dough rest for 60 minutes. Divide the dough into 8 pieces and cover to keep from drying out. Then roll out each piece of dough using the pasta roller attachment until the desired thickness is achieved. Add flour as needed if the dough is a little sticky. You can also roll the dough by hand.

Notes

Visit my websites SHOP MY KITCHEN for small appliances, tools, and hard to find pantry items.
Don't add the 2 tbsp of water unless the pasta is very dry.  The dough should be firm and not at all sticky.  In the winter when the moisture in the air is low, you will want to add the 2 Tbsp. of water.  In the summer I sometimes have to add up to 2 extra tbsp. of flour.  Remember the hour rest period will help the flour absorb the water and the pasta will become a little softer.
