step 1: be inspired by distant relative [jim this is all your fault]
step 2: wait 3-4 years
step 3: buy pasta machine
step 4: wait another 2 months
step 5: find a table/counter in the kitchen the vise will actually grab onto
step 6: mix 2 C flour, 2 eggs, and pinch o' salt in kitchenaid to avoid floury kitchen explosion
step 7: promptly overmix first batch
step 8: knead first batch into blobby mess
step 9: let dough rest [nearly 1 pound] for an hour while repeating steps 6-9 minus the overmixing step
step 10: roll and cut pasta
step 11: test boil
step 12: admire lengths of spaghetti
step 13: admire and eat cooked pasta
step 14: repeat steps 10-13 until full to bursting
step 15: clean up pasta remnant graveyard and remainder of floury kitchen explosion.
step 16: realize why jim started this process at 1pm...instead of 730pm.
