Problems with Homemade Pasta

pastaguy | Nov 30, 2008 02:52 AM

All,

I bought myself one of those nifty $30 pasta machines at Bed & Bath on black friday, and I figured that I'd give it a shot. I'm stuck making the dough, and I'd love a bit of help.

I'm using the 2C AP flour, 2Eggs well method as has been recommended to me. I make the well, put in the beaten eggs, and stir it up slowly incorporating the sides as I go. I get a dough that's really loose (like threats of old clothes), which I then pull together with my hands and then put out on a board to kneed. The dough goes from loose to stiff as a board in about three kneeds, and at that point i can barely work it. I'm sure I've missed something here--any ideas what it could be?

Thanks!
