Equipment you will need for this technique

Pasta machine (with attachments if desired)

Rolling pasta through a pasta machine produces professional results.

-Flour a work surface and the rollers of the pasta machine. Flatten out the chilled pasta dough into a rectangle.

-Set the rollers to their widest setting. Roll the pasta through the rollers.

-Narrow the rollers by changing the machine setting by one notch, then pass the rolled pasta through the rollers again. Dust the rolled pasta with flour.

-Repeat the process until the pasta sheets are as thin as the recipe requires, or until they've been passed through the narrowest setting on the machine.
