Fresh Pasta! Mmm!!

For Christmas 2008, Newt and Joanne suggested that instead of buying gifts for one another, we should do something fun together. So last Saturday, Joanne, Newt, Jenny and I spent several hours at Draeger's Cooking School learning how to make fresh pasta. Surprisely, it wasn't that difficult at all. I have always had this perception that making fresh pasta requires a lot of time. We made several different kinds of pasta: Agnolotti; Fazzoletti; Farfalle; Fettuccine. We had a blast learning and I look forward to this family tradition for years to come. Now we just have to decide which pasta machine to buy...




Fazzoletti - Little Handkerchiefs









Farfelle - Butterflies or Bow Ties
