Fresh pasta recipes

I got the pasta roller attachment for my kitchenaid, and I'm looking for a site where I can find fresh pasta recipes that are more interesting than the basic recipes provided in the package. I'm thinking along the lines of red pepper pasta, spinach pasta, etc.

I will follow the thread for more information on a topic I'm very interested in. While we're waiting have you looked at the KitchenAid Conversations forums?
There is good stuff in All Forums/Recipes/Pasta recipes.

Sara,
I make a basic pasta dough, flour, eggs, to this I add depending on the amount of pasta I want, frozen spinch. Just cook the spinach, drain, squeeze out as much water as possible the chop very fine.
To make it easier, I start with already chopped spinach. for 3-4 servings I use 1/3 of a 10oz package, 5-6 1/2 of the package and 7-8 2/3 of the package. I just measure my flour, break in the eggs, beat with a fork, then add the spinach and beat to combine then just finish your pasta as you would a basic pasta dough.
Another one we like, is a basic pasta dough, but add cracked black pepper to taste to the eggs, flour mixture, great with just browned butter and parmesan after cooking.

Scroll down to the end of this page for some flavor options:

Types of Pasta - Knowledge - Hormel Foods

The lemon (w added lemon pepper) & tomato are very good, btw.

On the left of the page, check out the individual catagories -- great info.

I have an Imperia. Here are the basics -- & then some, that came with my machine:

Mish,
pasta won't stick when coiled if you dust it lightly with rice flour as my mother-in-law taught me. I also add a little to the baggies I store it in the freezer in as well. Works great.

Hope I've given some inspirational ideas to folks for the variety of pasta flavors one can come up with - to make it your own siganture dish. Homemade IS the best!
Mish, I always make extra when I make fresh pasta. After drying on mycloth covered kitchen table, I sprinkle rice flour on a several cookie sheets, then make nests of my pasta again sprinkled with rice flour. I flash freeze then transfer to baggies, I then sprinkle on about a tabelspoon of rice flour and freeze. I never add oil or anything to pasta i'm freezing.When ready to cook, just drop the frozen nest into boiling water..I don't leave pasta longer than several weeks in the freezer, it seems to want to dry out..

I got the kitchenaid attachment for Christmas and I have frozen some of my pasta but it was sticky. Thank you for all of the ideas and the rice flour tip. Have you made any kind of pasta with stuffing? Do you have any suggestions about that.
