Recipe can also be made with 1 pound dried fettuccine pasta. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the pasta and cook until tender but still firm to the bite, stirring occasionally, about 8 to 10 minutes. The pasta dough can be rolled out by hand. Cut the chilled dough into quarters and using a rolling pin, roll out the dough until 1/8- to 1/16-inch thick.
