Pasta and Arabbiata Sauce

Guess who made the pasta?
Me! With my shiny new machine!

It was not without its stresses! I had bought 'Continental flour' which they said was the thing for home made pasta. When I opened the packet it seemed to be very fine semolina. I used one cup of it, and one cup of all purpose flour.
I forgot to get the eggs out of the fridge so they could lose their chill. It took 3 eggs and still wouldn't come together. I wet my hands and that did it (once I had worked in the resulting slime).
But O it was hard to knead! When I pummelled it, it pummeled me back!
But putting it through the machine was such fun!
It took about 8 minutes to cook. Why was that? I thought it would be quicker.
But it tasted VERY good!

It looks very thick, did you adjust the rollers down one level at a time until you got it thin enough?
Sounds like you still need to search for the right flour in Australia. Really sounds like a flour problem. Once you had it together, did you refrigerate it for about 30 mins I think it is.

I have a handout from recipease on the method with a couple recipes and tips etc. Would you like me to scan and email it to you?

Ahh, thanks Jutta and Mada! I could have gone thinner. This was on 6, but the dial goes to 9.
Jutta if it is easy to scan and send me that info, I would love to have it!
Mada I WILL try it your way with the eggs first!
