This past weekend Jason's step-dad and I decided to try and make homemade pasta. Since neither one of us had ever done it before it was quite funny to watch. Learning the technique to getting square sheets as you put it through the press took a little bit of time. We were not sure what consistency the dough should be so it took a little while and experimenting with adding flour to find the right dough make up that would flatten the best. There are only a few ingredients and it turned out to be easier then we expected. The pasta was fantastic......everyone gobbled it up. It's definitely something I foresee myself making often in the future.....especially with the cookbook that gives so many recipes for different types of pasta.
The Christmas gift of pasta press and fettuccine cutter turned out to a lot of laughs and makes great pasta!
