  • “I prepared this recipe last night for supper. My yougest daughter loved the noodles!”

  • “I asked for a pasta machine at Christmas and received one.I have been staring at it for 2 months and finally decided to take the plunge.This is the first pasta dough I have ever made and see no reason to look for other recipes.It was easy even for a beginner and tasted great!
    Thanks so much for my ‘go to’ pasta recipe!”

  • “Easy and simple to make. Good flavor. I will use this again and again. Thanks for sharing.”

  • “This was WONDERFUL!!!! I tried this with my new kitchen aid pasta attachment sort of expecting a disaster. The dough still seemed to be sticky but a tad more flour brought it to the perfect consistency. Rolled out like a dream and cooked up so wonderfully!!!”

  • “I have used this same pasta dough recipe for years. I think I got it out of a amish cookbook. It is a very good one.”

  • “Not sure if I did this right, I am new to making pasta.I found the very soft and moist, it was sticky to work with and a little too soft for my taste when cooked.The flavor was good though.I should try this again to see if I had done anything wrong.”
