Fresh Pasta

In Main meals, Pasta on November 18, 2011 at 3:43 am

This year for my birthday, I asked my parents for a pasta machine. Amazingly, I was rewarded with an Marcato Atlas! Very exciting stuff, and even though my birthday isn’t until mid December…..my mother and I couldn’t resist giving it a spin! So a couple of days ago I had my first crack at making fresh pasta. I opted for Fettucine as I figured it would be easier than spaghetti and my pasta machine only has the basic cutting attachments.

Here are a few photos of the process and end result. I didn’t photograph the first dish I made with my mum using the first batch of pasta – but I will tell you the sauce involved fresh parsley, cream, tuna, garlic, onion and mushrooms…..mmmmmm……

Today I enjoyed some for lunch with garlic infused olive oil and salt & pepper. Plain but delicious!
