KitchenAid Pasta Roller Attachment Review

Summary:

Gave this as a gift to my hubby for Christmas. I have never made my pasta dough in my Kitchen Aid mixer, because I would mix & knead by hand on my granite countertop, but I think those days are over. It only took a few minutes to prepare with my KitchenAid, and the best part was my arms didn’t even have a chance to get sore, since I only had to knead by hand for a couple of minutes!
