HOW IT STARTED: SOMEONE, sort of a neighbor, WANTS TO SELL THEIR ELECTRIC PASTA MACHINE -- FOR $100! (I gave away two a few years ago...but now have an itch.) SO, looking around on internet has taken me EVERYWHERE!!!
HERE is one of the best pasta videos I have found that is all about pasta making (and is not about electric pasta extruder machine, but wow -- not sure I want one now).
How to Make Egg Pasta (an in-depth guide) by Helen Rennie (warning: it is fairly long and she squeezes a lot in, so...)
PS: I have a food processor and a kitchen aid mixer w/pasta attachment. (Gave away hand crank plus elec machines when we moved into our small retirement 'honeymoon bungalow.") The idea of another machine was just for kicks. Very tempting.
