After trying various methods, I find I prefer doing it entirely by hand, or if lazy, starting with a food processor, but finishing by hand. One of the keys to good pasta is not overworking the dough, which can become tough and pasty. Overworking is too easy with a machine, so I prefer maintaining "feel" by working the dough by hand, same as I do for bread and pie crusts.
