For those having trouble with this, too dry or wet, just adjust with more flour or more water. After 3 or 4 times you will get to know what the dough should feel like. Do not skip the rest period! Give it at least 30 minutes at room temp. Do not give up! Once you have it down, it is a snap and you will laugh that you had trouble with it. The best thing to do is go to YouTube and type in "making pasta" for many different demonstrations on how to make it by hand, mixer or as I do, in the Cuisinart which is a snap and does it in 30 sec. Also it is not really necessary to knead it when it comes out of the machine as the pasta rollers will do it for you; just run through the first setting a few times until it is smooth and silky feeling and you are good to go.
Semolina can be bought at Walmart and most other grocery stores. It comes in 24oz bags and is next to the regular flours in the specialty flour section which is why it is hard to find. Also on Amazon. Just type in semolina. Bobs Red Mill is the same as the one in Walmart and comes in 4pks at $12.88 and if you order 2 pks it will be $25.76 qualifying for free shipping and no sales tax.
Hope this helps! Mike
