Today was pasta day. I was given (by my adoring dh 6 years ago) this pasta maker. It wasnt like I didnt want one, I KEPT saying I wanted one and then got it and never used it. For 6 years!



so damnit, here we go.

6 eggs
600g spelt flour (can use any other plain flour)
pinch salt
tablespoon olive oil.

mix all together to form a dough, place into a clean bowl and cover with cling wrap for 30 mins.

come back and lets make pasta!!




you wind the pasta through a few times to make sure its all stuck together nicely, once is no way near enough.



mind you this is the side of a cot Ive wiped down :)


I dried my pasta for about 3 hours for the fettuccine and about 5 hours for the lasagne sheets.


WOOHOOOO!!!

all done ready for cooking, but I want to serve this with my own pasta sauce which is why I dried it, pasta sauce another day lol.
