I ordered a pasta maker with my tax refund this year. The type that hooks up to my Kitchen-Aid mixer (no way am I cranking that stuff out by hand). I hopefully will get to try it out over spring break, though I have been warned the first batch will taste like metal. Good thing, since the first batch will probably go horribly wrong and have to be fed to the garbage. Stay tuned, and if works out, pasta party at my place.
