When pasta is to be cut into wrappers for stuffing, its consistency must be soft and sticky. The procedure given above for making noodles must therefore be adjusted as follows: Take one piece of dough at a time through the entire thinning process and before going on to the next piece, cut it and stuff it as the specific recipe describes. While working with one piece of dough, keep all the others that you will subsequently be getting to tightly covered with plastic wrap.
