3. When the dough is sufficiently mixed, add light layer of dough on your table surface and slightly flatten dough with your hand. Then start flipping the dough in half and pressing it with the heel of your hand. Continue folding dough in half or by quarter and press it by hands for about five minutes, continually adding small layer of flour to the table surface if necessary.
4. After that wrap dough in plastic wrap and leave it to stand for 15 minutes.
5. Put light layer of flour on the table surface and rolling pin and gently roll dough to the thickness of 1/8 of the inch. Add flour to the dough to prevent it to get sticky. At the end, roll the entire dough on the rolling pin.
6. Carefully extract rolling pin, leaving nicely folded dough on your table. Then, take sharp kitchen knife and start gently cutting strips of the desired width.

Drying needs to last at least 3 hours, after which spaghetti can be stored in airtight room temperature container and be usable for cooking in the next 4 days.
