It is been a long time since we first talk about pasta! Our first article about this topic was a recipe for homemade pasta. This is one of the best things you can do at home. It is very simple, very inexpensive, and very delicious! But to master this technique you will need special equipment, and our favorite one is the Marcato Pasta Maker.
A pasta maker or pasta machine is used to roll pasta dough into thin sheets of pasta. This equipment will allow you to adjust the thickness of the dough as it is rolled. If it is made too thin it will not cook properly and will become mushy instead of delicately textured. So it is important to understand the machine processes in order to roll the pasta so it provides the results desired. Pasta machines provide a means to produce a fresh, superbly textured and exceptionally flavored product once the art of producing pasta is mastered.
