5. Knead the dough on a floured surface for about 10 minutes. The dough will become smooth and elastic. If the dough is sticky, dust it lightly with flour and continue kneading.
6. Let stand for 30 minutes before rolling. If rolling the dough by hand, use a pasta-specific rolling pin if you can and roll it very thin. Cut in 1 cm strips for fettuccine.
7. Try to procure a pasta machine, This helps! Always follow the machine instructions for rolling and cutting.
8. To cook pasta, this should be done right before serving, with all the sauce and fix-ins ready and waiting! Cook in a pot of boiling water (we like to add a bit of salt as well). Fresh pasta only needs 2-3 minutes generally, as compared to dried packaged pasta which requires close to 10 minutes. You will know the pasta is ready after it floats, and a taste test of course!
