Fresh Pasta anyone?

I found a pasta machine at a yard sale!!
So I had to make some fresh pasta!! All I can say is yummmmmmm!!

Here's the recipe I used.

PASTA DOUGH

2 c. flour
2 eggs
1 tbsp. olive oil
3/4 tsp. salt
Warm water
Equipment: Food processor, pasta machine
Combine all ingredients, except water, in food processor. With processor running, add enough water to form a firm ball of dough. Remove from processor; cover and let rest for 1 hour. Cut into golf ball size pieces. Dredge with flour and put through pasta machine. Use wide strips for lasagna or ravioli or put through spaghetti cutter. Use immediately or dry for future use. Freeze pasta if not used within a day or two.

I have made fresh pasta a few times. It is good but a lot of work. (but then I rolled it out with a rolling pen)

We have a pasta machine bought at a yard sale and never used...I'm printing the recipe and going to tell hubby to try it!

You find the best kitchen appliances and gadgets! I guess if I'd actually go out to a yard sale, I'd be able to find some, too! LOL!!!! That pasta does look really yummy.

And Tango really does look like my Wilson! I love Tabby cats!

XOXO,

Good find! I make homemade noodles whenever I make homemade chicken soup, but I do them by hand. I don't do it enough to justify buying a pasta maker, I guess. Anyhow, because they are done by hand, they have been dubbed, "Mom's fat a_s" noodles (excuse my french!).

I love making home made pasta, and my hubby loves eating home made pasta. I kick myself for giving my pasta machine away to someone who admired it.
