Can anyone recommend a good pasta maker? I really want to make my own pasta!
I've seen some really expensive and really cheap pasta makers so I don't know how to choose! I'm just looking for the manual roller type of pasta maker, nothing electric.
You don't really need a machine if you're going for plain noodles. If you want flat pasta for making, say, tortellini or ravioli, all you need is a large flat surface and a rolling pin, and a good recipe for the pasta. If you want to make linguini, roll out the flat pasta and cut it with a knife.
If you want spaghetti, rather than roll it out, pull it into a long bit, double it, pull it out again, double it, and so on. If you get a copy of the movie Kung Fu Panda, the Special Features section shows a chef making noodles this way. It looks like it takes a lot of practice. I've only made flat noodles, myself.
Thanks to you both for the input! I'd not thought of just rolling the pasta out without the machine. I think I will give that a try since ravioli is want I really want to make. But I'm glad to have at least one machine recommendation just in case!

Why is important to boil noodles in salty water?I've always been told to boil noodles in the "water of the sea" but I don't know why. Is it an old-wives tale or is there some truth to it?
