Fresh Pasta

2 May

I have always thought that the process of making pasta must be reserved for very brave and skilled people who have all day to devote to following detailed recipes and intense preparation.

Just found out that this is not the case.

I actually made pasta when the kids were around, very present actually.  I gave the kids some dough to play with and kneed.  They kept wanting more and more flour and the floor was a bit white afterwards.  But we ended up with delicious noodles.  It was surprisingly easy and very fun.

Measure out 3/4 cup flour + 1 egg for each person

Now that you know how easy it is don’t you want to try?

Now I want a noodle press since the hardest part of making these was rolling out the tough dough.  I might have  gotten a few new muscles making these so maybe I don’t want a noodle press =)

    Caitlyn, let the dough rest for about 20 minutes before you roll it out. Much better :O) Robyn Mc

    Caitlyn, you will love a noodle press! My girls have been making pasta for us for years. When Kelly comes home from college, that’s what she wants to do! Homemade noodles are the best kind! Enjoy!
