My wonderful married daughter wanted to spend the day with me after she got out of meetings. So, when she arrived we agreed we wanted to make some fettuccine, from scratch.
Yup. We did!
First, we assembled the pasta drying rack that I had found, unused at a thrift store....
Then we mixed the dough and kneaded it into a beautiful little ball. We divided the dough into 8 sections.
Then, we flattened the sections into disks that could go into this pasta roller, it runs the dough through and makes the sections long and thin.
We then cooked the pasta....
My other daughter came over after work and joined us for dinner, and since Hubby was at a meeting, it was a delightful "girl's evening" with just my daughters!
What fun we had!
Making pasta is a treat. It is more delicious that dry pasta you get at store, but it is time consuming.
It took about 40 mins or so to make it from scratch.
There were two of us, it does work better with two....
I had read somewhere that letting it dry a bit before cooking allows it to stay together when cooking, so that takes some time too.
It was a great way to spend time with my daughter and get caught up on what is going on in her life.
Hope you try fresh homemade pasta sometime....
