pasta


I made fresh pasta today. It's probably the third time that I've made it. The first time was kind of a bust... the second was pretty good and now I think I'm getting a hang of it. Plus the recipe couldn't be easier, for ever 100g of flour you'll need 1 egg. So easy to multiply! I used 100g of wheat flour and 100g of spelt flour, then of course 2 eggs.
I'd love to try and start adding different flavors to it, spinach etc. Maybe try different shapes etc too. I made the pasta for dinner tonight with sauteed eggplant and garlic shrimp. YUM.

I'm impressed! I guess you need a pasta roller right? and a spaghetti cutter? :os

Were you inspired by Aaron on Masterchef? ;) I'd actually like to try it, too, when I get a bit more time as it doesn't look like something you can just whip together really quickly.

@Emmy it's all in one thing, like this: http://www.viecokitchen.com/shoppingcart/product_images/w/631/Mercato_Atlas_150_Wellness_Pasta_Machine__42801_zoom.jpg

@Cara, a bit inspired I guess. I got the machine a few months ago but I guess if Aaron didn't inspire me directly MasterChef did! It takes about 10min to make the dough, then let it rest a bit while you're making sauces etc. Have your girls help you roll it! They'd love to crank it i'm sure! Can't believe its going to be over soon... Who do you think will win? I'm hoping for Adam!
