Shiny New Toy or Let the Pasta Games begin

A friend gave me this lovely contraption for christmas. now I have to learn to make pasta.  all purpose flour or semolina flour?  the fork and well method or a food processor?  lots of egg or little egg?  oil or no oil?  mario batali says kneading is essential.  mark bittman doesn't knead.  what I can say about myself is that I like cooking to be as quick and easy as it can possibly be without compromising the quality of the resulting product.  I have a pre-conceived notion of how I'd like my pasta to turn out, though I am open to other possibilities.  I'm going to do some experiments and will let inform you of my findings...
