Proper method to "next" pasta noodles for drying

SkipII | Jan 13, 2007 04:10 PM

I am not understanding something on how to dry homemade pasta noodles, e.g. fettucini.

Several web postings say to curl them into a next to dry but if I do they turn to a sodden mush. If I try to dry them enough ahead of time (over the back rung of a chair), they are not flexible enough to next and they break.

It does not seem to matter how much I flour them.

I'm baffled.
