Place eggs, flour, cocoa powder and salt in the mixer bowl. Attach the dough hook to the stand mixer and knead on speed 2 for 2-3 minutes.If the dough is too hard, add few spoons of water.
Remove the dough from the bowl and cut it into four pieces. Take one piece and flatten into a rectangular shape. Be sure to cover the other pieces with cling film to prevent from drying. .
Attach the pasta roller and set the adjustment knob to 1.. Turn Speed Control Lever to 2 and run the pasta dough through the pasta sheet roller. Fold into three and pass through the roller again, then repeat this process four or five times.
When the dough is no longer sticky, set the adjustment knob to 2, and 79971 through. Do not fold the dough this time. Continue rolling the dough through, two or three times on each setting, until you obtain the desired thickness (4). Repeat with the remaining portions of dough.

Run the pasta sheet through the fettuccine cutter with one hand and hold on to the pasta with the other hand as it comes through the cutter.
