I made fresh pasta from scratch for dinner this evening and on a whim, I live tweeted the making of this using the hashtag [#makingfreshpasta)] which evoked a lot of enthusiastic responses. That’s the reason I decided to compile all the tweets and the pictures (iPhone camera) into a quick post. Pardon the picture quality, my iPhone was already groaning under the blanket of flour and olive oil it was being subject to!
I only want to show you how simple the procedure is, even without any fancy machines. The fettucini procedure is a bit lengthy but for starters, you could just cut squares (as in step 6), in fact that was yummier than the more labour intensive fettucini.
This recipe is vegan as it uses no eggs or butter. If you use eggs in the pasta dough, surely you’ll get a richer tasting end product. If you can make rotis, you can do this handmade pasta. No sweat!
