Homemade Pasta

Homemade pasta

I don't know why we never made fresh pasta before. Okay, we had one of those as-seen-on-the-tv thing that you dump everything in and flip a switch to push the pasta out of little holes. Easy? Absolutely. But it's missing that chewy, toothsome feel without properly developing the gluten in the dough. My parents happens to have a regular pasta machine that they probably used once in the 20+ years that they got it. (I'm not kidding, the price tag said it's from BEST. Who still remember that store???) Chris finally gave it a go this past weekend and it was almost as quick to make as that other machine. I tossed the freshly cooked pasta with some bacon, artichoke hearts, and lots of garlic. Yum! Can't wait to make it again.
