Thank you for replying to my post. How about freezing the dough? Can that be done? If so, do you just bring it to room temp before rolling out? Thank you in advance and Happy New Year.

Why do lasagna or pappardelle require a special attachment on pasta machines?

I want to share a personal experience, so no one else makes this mistake and ends up getting frustrated. I followed the boil after lasagna strips are made and put them in a cold bath. After placing all noodles (a few at a time) into the cold water. They ended up sticking together and ripping apart when I tried to pick them up. I probably should have put in one at a time and then laying out again. I had to put torn ripped up pieces like a jigsaw puzzle in the dish. The good news, the lasagna was still delicious. The bad news I had to throw out the pieces I was going to use for another dish as they were useless. I wonder if I should have just forgone boiling and just do the lasagna with the fresh uncooked noodles? Just a thought. Anyone else have this problem and what they did about it? Thanks.

I can't find the answer to this anywhere, so Im hoping someone out there in cyberworld can help. I just got my KA pasta rollers and I'm really having fun. I've followed their recommended recipes and so far so good. Is it possible to make the dough ahead of time (like the day before)? Can you freeze the dough for future use, and if possible how would it be stored in fridge (saran wrap)? Thank you so much in advance. E from NJ
