We recently bought a Kitchenaid 6 quart mixer, along with the ice cream and pasta maker attachments. For dinner, bad ass Mrs. P (with her one good hand), made homemade fettuccine with shrimp & peppers, with a homemade pesto sauce, and marshmallow ice cream (with regular & toasted marshmallows) Not bad for her first time using the pasta and ice cream attachments. I can imagine what she could make with two good hands What a difference fresh pasta makes. These Kitchenaid products are so well made.

LOVE my KA pasta roller-cutter. I could see it being relatively easy to use one-handed. They have a new extruder attachment for spaghetti, bucatini, etc. that I covet. But I hardly ever use roller-cutter--we just don't eat that much pasta, so i can't justify getting one.
Mrs. P's pasta looks great, and I love the drying rack. And btw: I do the same with my flours, transferring to square jars and taping on the labels. Great minds.

Yes, I know the 3 piece pasta roller-cutter is expensive, but I have a Bed Bath & Beyond credit card, where you get 5% off of all purchases at BBB and Harmon's. During a 1 month period, between Thanksgiving & Christmas, they ran a special of 5% off for all charges made at a restaurant. Since Mrs. P & I dine at least twice a week, we were able to amass $120.00 in BBB gift checks during that period. BBB also has a cool annual membership special, where for $30.00 you get 20% off of all purchases plus free shipping. It's well worth it. So between the combined 25% off using a BBB card, plus the $120.00 in accumulated BBB gift cards, we got a very nice discount on it.
