|The dough is made out of flour and eggs. That's it! I added a couple tablespoons of water to get the consistency right. You have to work at it for awhile (it's tough dough), but once you do you get beautiful results!|
|You get this smooth little ball of dough that's ready to rest for 20 minutes in saran wrap. It's not going to rise or anything--just rest. The resting and kneading makes the pasta lighter in the end.|
|We decided to make linguini first. The pasta maker comes with linguini and spaghetti (more like a very fine angel hair really) cutters. This is the fun part-watching your dough turn into beautiful ribbons of pasta.|
|We used jar sauce, don't judge. (Classico vodka sauce-it's awesome! I would have made my own, but didn't have heavy cream or vodka. Those are kind of important...) This was pretty delicious.|
Next up will be ravioli. I'm very excited for this one! It doesn't take much more time. When the dough is resting you make an easy filling. All you need is a ravioli cookie cutter or a pastry cutter and you're in business. I'll post about the ravioli some time next week hopefully. Happy Friday!
