This Ingenious Gadget Makes Fresh Pasta for You in Minutes

No kneading required!

If you long to visit Italy because of the arts, the fashion, but most of all, the food, I don't blame you. I can't help you with the first two, but the Philips Pasta Maker is likely the answer to your culinary dreams. This pasta maker requires none of the elbow grease and patience often associated with making the carb-y delight. Instead of kneading flour, water and eggs together until you have just the right consistency—which, if you’re Italian you likely know by feel—you simply pour the ingredients into this device and wait for it to do all the hard work.

Within three minutes, you’ll start to see the beginnings of your pasta take form. Stand by, because once it starts coming out of the spout—like the grownup version of the Play-Doh Fun Factory—you’ll need to be there to cut it to your desired length (spaghetti long, penne short). What makes this machine even more appealing is that you can mix up the ingredients, adding herbs, spinach and carrot juice to make various types and flavors of pasta.

The pasta maker comes with four interchangeable discs: spaghetti, lasagna, penne and fettuccini. You can buy additional sets to make other noodle varieties, like angel hair and tagliatelle—and since it's fresh pasta, it only take a few minutes to cook up.
Bottom line, you can create as much pasta as you used to have at Olive Garden—and still gift your friends homemade pasta every single holiday.
