I've been finding that out while playing with my pasta toys. You don't really need to think, but you do need to be aware. Sure, I do some thinking when it comes to deciding what sort of dough to make, what shape, etc. but when it comes down to the actual mechanics of doing it, you just do it.   mjb.
