One of the plans I had for this weekend is to meet up with my good friend Mirka and our Italian friend Paddy for a cook-out. We have been saying that we should attempt making fresh pasta, for weeks; if not months. Finally the day was upon us!
For our first try, we decided on keeping things simple, and make tagliatelle.
To make the pasta dough, it turned out to be quite a marathon, or even a workout. We took turns to knead the dough until silky and smooth, and until no flour blobs were visible.
Making use of the Andrew James pasta maker was pretty straightforward for us newbies, and we made the most gorgeous pasta.
We cooked it in hot boiling water, with some salt and made a mushroom, onion, and bacon white sauce for it.
It was great, and I can confirm that the first attempt was a major success!!
