If you're going to use the dough for ravioli or lasagne, you can use it straight away. We left our strips of pasta to 'dry' on the kitchen table for half an hour because we wanted to make tagliatelle/fettucine. If you try putting 'moist' dough through the cutters, it tends to stick and the strands don't separate.
And now for the fun part. Putting it through the cutters!
We hung it up over the backs of chairs.

At dinner time we boiled it in lots of very salty water. It took about 4 minutes to cook. And the final verdict? Mamma mia, é squisito!

that was left over from Saturday night. Plus lots of fresh parmesan and black pepper.
See, now I've made myself hungry writing this blogpost! Luckily it's just coming up for 12 noon and there's leftover pasta for my lunch. Yum.
Have a marvelous Monday! :)
