 Homemade Pasta How to make Fettuccine Noodles

Out of the blue this afternoon I decide I am in the mood for some fresh pasta. I’ve made fresh pasta a few times in the past. I have also made fresh homemade ravioli. I love my homemade ravioli filled with homemade ricotta cheese.
Just last week I hoisted my Altea lusso 160 up onto the top shelf in my laudrey room to get it out of the way for my holiday baking. The minute I slid it onto the top shelf I thought to myself…..what if I decide to make ravioli? I shook my head and thought I will not be making any ravioli in the next week. What with Christmas baking and dinner to prepare.
Oh by the way I bought the pasta machine at the local Goodwill for $10 about eight years ago. It was the best ten bucks I ever spent.
So here we are making homemade Alfredo noodles. I can blame it on the Food Network. I was watching something on there today with Alfredo noodles and thought to myself I need to make some home made Broccoli Fettuccine Alfredo. So here we are. it was late in the day when I started so I made the Alfredo noodles and put them in the fridge. I will be making broccoli fettuccine Alfredo for lunch tomorrow.
The recipe I used for the noodles is
2 1/2 cups unbleached all purpose flour
4 eggs
2 teaspoons olive oil.
I placed all the ingredients into my kitchen-aide mixer and let it do all the work. Normally I would knead by hand. I love to knead dough by hand. I guess I am old fashioned when it comes to kneading. I enjoy the process of making pasta and bread from scratch, feeling to dough coming together.
 Once all the flour was mixed in good I took the ball of dough out of the mixer bowl and formed it into a ball. I put it back into the mixer bowl and covered it with a towel and let it rest for about 30 minutes.
Once the dough was nice and rested I cut it into eight equal pieces. I do not have a kitchen scale and most of the balls were about equal size but you know how that goes.
I then worked each small ball through the pasta machine and cut it into noodles. I took the dough down to the #5 then cut it into noodles. Next time I will go down to #4. This was my first try at alfredo noodles so I wasn’t sure what numberr to work down to.
As I mentioned I do not have a scale so I am not sure how much pasta I ended up with. One of these days I’ll get a scale but for now I will just eye ball it.
Here is my pretty pasta! What do you think? Doesn’t it look yummy?
Thanks for stopping by!

    I'd love to have a pasta maker… unfortunately, I probably won't have one until I'm married, which won't be for a while…I suppose I'll have to figure out a way to do it by hand. :) thanks for sharing though.
