1/2 cup warm water

3

Add cold water and flour

Add cold water and flour. Mix with the dough hook.

7

Roll and cut

Crank your dough through the roller. Fold it and run it through again. Continue this, reducing the width of the dough until it's the thickness you want your noodles to be.

8

Run your dough strips through the cutter. Most of these pasta rollers have a fettuccine cutter and a spaghetti cutter. Use the spaghetti size.

9

To cook, just boil in salted water for about 3 minutes, then strain and add to broth or a stir fry. The noodles also freeze well for longer storage.
