Pasta Al Fresco

"I'd much rather eat pasta & drink wine than be a size 0"

- Sophia Lauren

I was gifted a pasta cutter. Little did the gift giver know, that I would not be able to stop myself now that the option to make my own pasta was within reach. My family is going to be eating pasta at every meal in every shape and size because I am so stinking excited!

The pasta maker/cutter allows for a variety of pasta cuts including ravioli, fettucini, or lasagna sheets to name a few. So far, I have air dried the strands, but I now have a new dehydrator as well, and that too can be used to dry your freshly made pasta!

^here it is - with interchangable pasta cutting attachments.

Pasta is actually a lot easier to make than I ever thought - which is good, because I don't like things to be complicated.

Ingredients for basic pasta dough:

  • 3-4 eggs

  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil

  • 2.5 cups of flour

  • 1 teaspoon of kosher salt

  • various tablespoons of water depending on the dough consistency

(if not blending, add more water, if too sticky add a little more flour)
