I believe Italians eat the same dried stuff that you can buy in most supermarkets here. Just go for a decent quality bag from a good brand, it shouldn't be too shiny (the pasta, not the bag).

I make my own quite a lot.

eggs (laid by my chicken "halal")

flour

oil (oilive, tomato, basil, chilli...crude)

(you can bung in dried oregano into the mix too)

and a pasta maker to get the thinness needed....

and it takes seconds to cook and tastes 10000000 times better ...it's like a different food stuff to dried pasta.

Yeah, that's true. Freshly made pasta is better but the extra hassle and mess just isn't worth it except on special occasions imo (and in the opinion of millions of Italians).
