Anybody here making their own pasta?

I'm thinking of trying it and was wondering if any of you have tried it or do it.

Thanks

We do Nick. It's fun in the winter on a Sunday after noon. I picked a pasta maker up at a garage sale a few years back, just plug it in and add ingredients. I like to make hot pepper spaghetti.

We've had a brand new pasta maker in the cabinet for 8-10 years and have just never done it. Perhaps you pros could share some tips and motivation. It would go real well with some of Nick's recipe Italian sausage I have in the freezer (great stuff)

I went through a pasta making phase once upon a time. Had me a plastic Ronco pasta making moochine from off of TV. It done good till it broke the little disc collar that holds the plate which extrudes the dough into various shapes. It just about like using a sausage stuffer. If I bought another I would make sure it was made out of metal. SS preferably. Aint no way plastic can withstand the pressures when you start pushing the stuff through the plate. Now maybe they have some made out of space age plastic material that can withstand it these days..but everybody I know who had a plastic model wind up breaking just like mine did. The ho made stuff is firmer..denser..richer than the store bought stuff.

I have considered buy a pasta maker a bunch of times, and I always come to the conclusion it's easier just to spend a dollar and buy it. If you make your own sauce and pasta it seems to take way too much time.

And BBQ doesn't? We spent half the day canning peaches. Yea it does take time, but well worth it in my book. Some things are worth the time.

Well my mom had a SS pasta maker that I borrowed and a ravioli maker. So some time in the future I will be giving it a whirl. Seems like a neat winter project. Then my meal will consist of homemade pasta, homemade sausage, homemade meatballs, homemade sauce and of course homemade bread. Now if I only made wine!
