A couple of notes: I love how allrecipes cleaned up my recipe! They changed a couple of minor things, though, which I understand.
Steps 5 and 6 in the directions are a little different that I would do it too, thought it might work as described. However you do it, always keep the dough covered when not working it to keep it from drying. A very light dusting of flour (I just brush the sheets with a flour-covered hand) will keep the sheets from sticking to each other) The way I make the dough roll is just to roll all the dough through the machine til very thin, then one at a time, stretch the dough from one end, brushing with fat and rolling until I get to the end, then start the next piece, overlapping them just enough to keep the sheets together. This way, the dough doesn't dry out. Either way, you should be able to stretch the dough to at least twice the width it was as a sheet after its last trip through the pasta machine.
