I have been wanting to make this recipe for close to fifteen years now--ever since I saw them make it on Martha Stewart Living. I was young and didn't have all the appliances listed in the recipe--collecting those took a few years. But it was worth the wait...and the six hours it took from start to finish. The dough is beautiful--I rolled mine all the way to setting 7 on my Kitchenaid attachment, and it held up well. I would probably boil the pasta in batches, for 1 minute each.
