2. Cut the dough into quarters and keep the dough you aren't using covered. Press this first bit of dough as flat as possible and run through the pasta rollers at the widest setting. It will be difficult at first, but keep at it! If it's crumbly at first, keep pressing it back together and running it through again. When it's finally a sheet that holds together, move to the next setting on the pasta rollers.
3. Folding in thirds between each roll, put the pasta dough through each setting on the roller at least three times. You will see the texture of the dough change from coarse to smooth, and the color will change from dark yellow to light yellow.
4. After you have run the dough through the thinnest setting, you can use the cutting attachments to cut the dough into the desired width. You can hang the pasta to dry, or, if using it immediately, gently pile it on a cookie sheet, moving it around every few minutes to be sure it's not sticking anywhere.
5. To cook fresh pasta, bring a pot of water with just a touch of olive oil to a boil. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes only. Drain and serve with your favorite simple sauce.
