If you’ve followed me for a bit, you’ll know I consider myself a lucky guy.
Good friends, great family, and my gosh, good pets!
What an awesome holiday it’s been.
One of the gifts I received for Christmas from Danielle and Jim was a Pasta Machine.
I’ve always loved pasta and anything pasta related, but had never had homemade pasta.
So, today, the better half opened up the pasta machine. I wasn’t ready, but guess what? She was!
Turns out, making pasta dough is easy.
3 eggs and 2 and 1/2 cups of flour, which I mixed in the standmixer.
I played with the dough a bit, added a little olive oil and water until it looked and felt right, and then we let it rest for 10 minutes.
Here’s where the fun began.
The first run.
Pasta drying. Looks kind of creepy, doesn’t it?
Nance made a sauce out of basil and butter, and onion and garlic that really made the house smell good!
It was the best pasta I ever had.
My advice, and take it for what it’s worth, is make your own!
