I just followed the simple instruction that comes with the machine. I used the same recipe my mom used when she made the Home made fresh egg noodles by hands.
1. I clamped the pasta machine (comes with the machine) on the kitchen counter, so as one hand is rolling, the other will be free to work with the noodles
2. I divided the dough into 4 and work with one dough at a time. I flattened the dough (flat enough to feed through the roller) and set the roller on the machine to 7. It has 1 to 7, with 7 being the widest and 1 the narrowest. I lightly dusted the roller with some flour. I fed the dough into the roller and I rolled the dough into a sheet several times on each setting (the more you pass it through the roller, the more “chewy” the noodle will be). I did not go all the way down to 1 (the narrowest), I stopped at 4, as it is the desired thickness I wanted
3. Once I was done with the rolling, I dusted the sheets liberally with flour. I then fed the sheet onto the cutter (located on top of the roller). As, I wanted this to be thick noodles, I used fettuccine cutter… and voila…. the egg noodles
Noodle soup was what we had for lunch. I get to play with the machine and eat the noodles too! I think I’m going to get this pasta machine for myself too
Next, I think I’m going to make a fresh spaghetti or fettuccine….
