There are a couple of tricks that really help with making your pasta come out and not stick that aren't in the instructions. The first big trick is to let your sheet pasta sit and dry out for 10-20 minutes then run it through the spaghetti attachment. It will still be soft enough to work with but won't stick nearly as much. Also, you may need more flour on the dough when you feed it into the cutter. Then separate and toss with more flour and hang to dry or with flour on a sheet pan.
