homemade pasta and where to buy semolina flour [Moved from Manhattan board]

hey all

i've recently discovered how delicious and how much fun it is to make home-made pasta, but have found semolina flour not that easy to come by. has anyone seen it for sale in bulk/bins anywhere. i purchased some at fairway but it was rather expensive for quite a small prepackaged amount.

also, anyone have any favorite homemade pasta recipes, methods, approaches, etc? i made orecchiette (this is a good pasta to make without a pasta maker, which i don't have at the moment, though i have access to at my sister's place if the right recipe compells me!) from a simple mixture of 1 cup semolina, 2 cups regular flour and about 1 cup water. after it was cooked i mixed in garbanzos, feta, mint, cilantro, green onions, sundried tomatoes and garlic - so so good!
