We were always impressed with people who made their own pasta at home - until we discovered the Philips Pasta Maker ($300). With this device, it's actually pretty easy. Just dump the ingredients in and the pasta maker takes care of the mixing and kneading on its own. After 15 minutes, set out a bowl to catch the spaghetti... or you could just have it fall directly into your mouth if you want to make an entirely unromantic recreation of that Lady and the Tramp scene.
