So I found this cool old Cavatelli Maker at Salvation Army last week, but it is missing the instructions!  Does anyone have a good idea how to use it and a nice recipe to go along with those instructions?!  It's an old, metal, handcrank version.  Made by Vitantonio Mfg. Co. and says it makes cavatelli and gnocchi large or small.  I know gnocchi, and how to make that by hand, but it's the cavatelli that interests me.
Thanks fellow Craftsters!!!

I'm not sure where the machine comes in but there are pretty good looking instructions here... http://www.eatingcleveland.com/2007/06/17/how-to-make-cavatelli-pasta-by-hand/

You've probably figured this out by now, but I'll explain it just in case. You roll the dough into ropes about two feet long and as thick as a crayola marker. Then you feed it into the machine and turn the crank. If the pieces don't come apart, the rope is probably too thick. Once you have your pieces of cavatelli, dry them on waxed paper on the kitchen table (or some other flat surface). Once they're dry you can cook them or freeze them for later. You should probably make extra to freeze since it takes a while to make them and they freeze well.

Anyway, I envy your wonderful find. I would love to have one so I could have cavatelli all the time.
