Pasta is one of my favorite things to make. It's surprisingly simple, fun to work with and obviously yum to eat. Try with me?
Pasta is very simple to make. The recipe is rather straightforward. There are lots of variations of dough you can make, this is just the one that I most often make. You CAN dry out pasta, but I prefer not to with this particular recipe because it gets a bit crumbly.... but it tastes lovely cooked fresh, or from frozen. No, you do not need a pasta maker to make homemade pasta. You can use one. I have one that Jeremy got me last Christmas. I use it often so my dough can be uniform. Honestly though, the pasta machine is not faster than doing it by hand. It is only more consistent. I made pasta one time with my friend Brittany and we wanted to see if one was faster than the other... and they're literally the same... both take a bit of time. So maybe don't try this when you have somewhere to be shortly. Try it on your day off... and make enough to save some for later to make the most of your time and your effort. Let’s make pasta together.
