Handmade Pasta

May 19, 2009 at 3:17 pm 1 comment

I don’t have a pasta press, and it’s much lower on my wish list than a pressure canner, but how wonderful it would be to make herb pasta with fresh herbs from the garden! Or spinach/sun dried tomatoes/peppers.

This article on Dave’s Garden makes it sound so easy, I will try to make a batch by hand this summer. The author said his hand crank pasta press only cost him $25, and hand made pasta is cheap to make, while giving you control of the ingredients (all you REALLY need is flour and water). Also, chocolate pasta?

    we have a pasta machine and it is a bit of work but totally worth the effort…. fresh pasta is so good it almost doesn’t need herbs. the four of us will have to have a pasta-pigout some night this summer.

    PS you want eggs in your pasts, trust me
