Filomena's Pasta Fresca

The women in my family would gather in my grandmothers kitchen to make tons of pasta. From my great-grandmother Filomena to my grandmother Esther, mother Florence, aunts Lillian, Rita and Nancy, cousins, and myself, Linda, we made pasta for all of us and this is the recipe my great-grandmother used only I have scaled it down from 50 pounds of flour to a few cups and instead of elbow grease I use my Cuisinart and my Kitchenaid. It is so simple to make that I make it every week and freeze the pasta. I tried to break down the directions into easy steps. This really is an easy recipe but I think it can be daunting if you have never made pasta before. I have been making it for 50 years, since I was a little girl. Back in those days we rolled the pasta out with my great-grandmothers huge rolling pin and cut the pasta with either a knife or a little machine. The new fangled way is faster and better.
