  • On a floured surface, roll out the dough into a thin layer, you should be able to almost see through it. Let the dough hang or sit flat to dry. If you place it on the counter, turn it over every 5-10 minutes. The dough will be dry, but shouldn't be too dry to the point of breaking.

  • Cut dough to your own preference, or leave it in large sheets for lasagna. My favorite size is fettuccine.
