Time consuming, but worth it! This last week I tried using the different equipment to try making my own ravioli and then spaghetti noodles. As I mentioned earlier this week the ravioli bombed, I’m not sure if the thickness wasn’t right for the sheets of dough, or I tried to fill it to full. I just did like the video I watched, but who knows. I may try again at a later date, but for all the time it took I was very aggravated when a pile of mushy goo went into the garbage. Thankfully it doesn’t happen to often, but you might actually see steam coming out the ears when a kitchen experiment goes awry. Ain’t pretty folks.
The spaghetti noodle maker on the other hand was much more simple and was a whole different experience. It went together easily. I dropped my fresh noodles into boiling water and they were done in about three minutes. The flavor was out of this world and it will make it very hard to give this particular attachment back. I know that it will be going on my to-get list. The idea of buying boxed noodles isn’t very appetizing anymore.
I just wanted to show you a few pictures of the process of making my own pasta. Also if you decide to try making your own, I found an amazing pasta recipe here. It also gives ideas how to flavor/add color. The tomato paste works fabulously!
