I love making egg, semolina, and wheat pasta at home, but my home pasta maker (a KitchenAid attachment with a roller and two cutter blades) does only basic fettucini and spaghetti shapes plus whatever I cut the sheets to myself. Is it possible using either a by-hand technique or another machine to make elbow pasta or other round shapes at home, or is this something I have to stick to buying?


You should be able to buy a pasta plate that will get you what you need.

Pasta plate for KitchenAid mixer

  • I googled like crazy for this for asking here and somehow missed this - probably because I was looking at the KitchenAid pasta roller sets and not the grinder attachment. So many attachments... – justkt Aug 9 '10 at 18:43
  • I know, the world of home pasta is a little confusing to get into, but well worth the effort once you get the basics down. – sarge_smith Aug 9 '10 at 21:53

I just saw a machine for elbow macaroni called "pasta perfetto 900". May be foreign but was definitely making elbows

    Welcome! Note that this site has users from all over the world so describing something as "foreign" is meaningless: any item you could mention is "foreign" to probably most people here. – David Richerby Oct 20 '16 at 16:33
