Atlas Pasta Maker

We were already planning on our annual Noodle-Making Marathon for next week. We have to plan ahead because the noodles take over every raised horizontal surface for at least two days while they dry. Its a little crazy because we always did it all by hand and it took all day long...but not anymore!

Today while running a few errands we stopped at an area thrift store and there on a back shelf, in a battered box marked with the words OMC Atlas from Italy, was a beautifully made, stainless-steel pasta maker.

It has attached cutters for making fettuccine and spaghetti and you can buy a whole assortment of other attachments for it. I can't wait to try it out! If anyone has suggestions for good pasta recipes, please share. We'll start with our traditional and Herbed Whole Wheat noodles, but other favorite recipes are welcome! And if you have experience with this specific pasta maker, let us know what you think about it.

I'll post pictures of the new toy in use sometime next week...wish me luck!
