Pasta

alright nev

I have a cheapo plastic pasta maker, I have also tried making it by hand. My pasta maker is not up to much, when the pasta mixture goes through the maker it just expands again the other side.

I use flour and water mixed, I have tried with egg aswell, still don't get brilliant results.

Just to pick up on the environment issue that wombat mention. (Hello Nev) If you are growing them in your kitchen I guess on a windowsill, I am wondering if you have heating in your kitchen?
