The more I experiment at home, the more I want a machine that will do all the advance planning for me. Someone should really make a machine specifically for maccheroni and other oval shapes of pasta. These are some of my favorites, including my maccheroni mesh rolling machine which was featured in my Take a Machine, Take a Machine, Take a Machine how-to video.
I love making egg, semolina, and wheat pasta at home, but my home pasta maker (a KitchenAid attachment with a roller and two cutter blades) does only basic fettucini and spaghetti shapes plus whatever I cut the sheets to myself.
