Homemade pasta w/o pasta machine

I want to make homemade pasta, but I don't have a pasta machine to flatten it. I would love information on how to do this. Thanks so much

Hi and welcome to DC :)
You will just need a good sturdy rolling pin and elbow grease!

Welcome to DC! You can make several kinds of pasta without a pasta machine. It is easier with a pasta machine, but if you can roll dough and roll it thin, you don't need a pasta machine.

I used to roll mine with a rolling pin before I got my pasta attachment for the Kitchen Aid.

I used to roll out pasta and cut it into lasagna noodles. I finally decided that it was worth getting a pasta roller. Now I make linguine too. I use whole grain wheat flour, so I find that the spaghetti doesn't work too well.

You can make any flat pasta with just a rolling pin - linguine, fettuccine, papardelle, lasagna, ravioli, etc.

All the Italian mothers in Italy have been doing it by hand for centuries. Give it a try.
