I just got the pasta attach for my KA.. I have made pasta a couple of times.. in the mixer.. and NO the dought will NOT come together. .when you read the instructions it tells you that.. you get it mixed to a "crumbled" state.. not unlike a crumble topping.. then get it out of the bowl and KNEAD til it rounds up.. I cut it into walnut sizes and then to the fridge.. (actually put in the freezer for a few mins).. then out and drop in the pasta extruder attachment with the appropriate sized dye inserted.. IT WORKS AMAZING.. a full batch in less than a half an hour. I made Buscillii my first try.. amazing stuff.. try it. DON'T over mix.. pull it when the ingredients are mixed together only.. then KNEAD.. getting ready for two batches today to take as hostess gifts to partayyyy.. .. enjoy.. Merry Christmas.. Happy Holidays. to all..
