For Mother's Day Hubby gifted me a KitchenAid pasta roller attachment for my mixer. I suspect he was all about getting me a present that would lead to him having even more good food on his plate, but I'm not complaining because I have had so much fun "playing" with my new toy! I followed the directions from the class I took and was so happy that I was able to tackle this food project at home and not have any issues...and Hubby and Little Man loved the pasta I made! My attachment does not cut the sheets of pasta dough into the desired shape...it rolls it into sheets thin enough for pasta (you choose the thickness) and then you can cut them with a knife, etc. Not hard at all...and so fast to cook!
