Step 5: Wash those hands well. Dry them, and let’s get kneading.

Step 6: Knead your pasta dough for 5-10 minutes. (See why it’s good to have kids helping?) Punch the dough down, fold it into itself, punch it down again. Add a little flour if the dough sticks to your hands. Repeat … again and again.
