Kadesma, I made a small mistake with my recipe: The flour combination should be 50-50 or up to 70-30 proportion of fine wheat flour tipo 00 + fine semolina. (Not 30-70).

What I do is, place the flours (combined thoroughly) in a big dry mixing bowl. Make a well in the center and break the egg into the well. Then use a fork to mix the egg yolk and white together while slowly but gradually incorporating a little bit of the flour on the edges of the well. When the dough has come together, I knead by hand inside the mixing bowl. When ready, I transfer it to a lightly floured surface and knead some more until I achieve a 'baby's butt' texture. Wrap this in cling wrap and let rest for at least 30 min at room temp.
Thanks Chopstix,
I plan to make a sauce of several different sauteed mushrooms...butter,and a splash of wine...salt and pepper, we all love mushrooms so this will be perfect.

With my pasta maker, I make fresh linguini but use different veggies for flavoring. I like to use the powdered form of the veggies. Also have used different herbs and spices for flavors, like ground lemon pepper, powdered garlic, etc. Pesto pasta is delicious!

Thanks LC..I enjoy a pepper pasta now and again as long as there isn't to much heat. And I also love my lemon pasta...This time I've decided just a plaun simple pasta to put a mixed mushroom in butter and wine over..

My most recent was

1 1/2 cups sifted flour
1/4 cup dark cocoa
1 Tbs water
1/4 tsp salt

Make into Ravioli stuffed with roasted butternut squash and bacon. Then I sauteed them in olive oil with mushrooms and onions and once removed added white wine to make a sauce
