Pasta Press

I have shared with you all my noodle recipe before, 3/4 cup flour and one egg for each person eating.  The noodle dough needs to rest for 30 minutes, cranking the dough in the press takes about 5-10 minutes depending on the help you have and cooking the noodles only takes a few minutes to reach perfection.

Since the hardest part about making the noodles was rolling them out by hand and the cutting them.  I asked my folks for a noodle press for Christmas and couldn’t be more happy with it.

The girls LOVE turning the crank and helping out making dinner.  Whenever the kids are involved in creating meals they always eat more.  Not sure why this is the case but I am all for it =)

Of course things taste better when you are dressed like a princess.

    Caitlin, this is the first thing my girls do together when they are all home! There’s just something about making homemade pasta together!
