A Lello Pasta Maker allows you to make all kinds of fresh pasta because it comes with several patented discs. Therefore, you will be able to make anything from Penne to Lasagne by follow some very simple steps. So, if you often serve all manner of pasta and resort to dry pasta that you get from the grocery store, splurge with a Lello automatic pasta machine and you'll never go back to packaged pasta again.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Put a quantity of flour called for in the instructions in the bowl of your Lello Pasta Maker, then measure the water that is indicated by the instructions. Turn on the machine and add the liquid gradually through the intake hole on the top of the machine. Run the pasta machine for about ten minutes to blend the two ingredients.

  2. 2

    Remove the cover to check the consistency of the dough. The dough should not be sticky, but it should be moist, so this is the time to add either more flour or water before you begin kneading the dough. Replace the cover and continue kneading the dough for about another ten minutes.

  3. 3

    Turn the machine off after the dough is kneaded and choose the disc that will make the pasta the right shape for your recipe. Attach it where indicated, remove the shutter slide and turn on the machine. With a sharp knife, cut the pasta close to the disc at the length for your recipe.

  4. 4

    Insert your pasta into a pot of boiling water, but only enough at a time to keep the water boiling. Understand that fresh pasta is to boil for a shorter time than packaged pasta, so you'll need to taste the pasta every 30 seconds or so, to make it correct for your taste. Also, you can add some oil to the boiling water to keep the pasta from sticking.

  5. 5

    Choose the right Lello Pasta Maker based on the amount of pasta you ordinarily need. The PastaMaster 2200 will make about 0.998 Kilogram and it comes with six discs, while the PastaMaster 3000 will make about 1.36 Kilogram of pasta and it comes with two more discs.
