Turn the dough onto a clean, lightly floured surface, and knead it with a fair amount of energy and weight for 15 to 20 minutes. Remember to dust the surface with flour from time to time, kneading until you have a firm but elastic dough. Wrap in a clean cloth or plastic wrap, and let the dough rest for 30 minutes. 49 LOMBARDI A Divide the dough into three parts and roll it out in a pasta machine, beginning at the widest setting.

In between rollings, place the pasta on clean cloths that have been lightly dusted with flour. If you find that the rolling is taking a long time, cover the pasta with cloths to prevent the sheets from drying out. After rolling the dough through the first setting a couple of times, adjust the pasta machine to the next (smaller-sized, larger-numbered) hole and pass each piece of dough through this setting. Continue this process, increasing the settings incrementally until you reach number 5. When you get to number 5, pass each piece of dough through twice, resulting in 8 pasta sheets measuring 16 by 4 inches each.
