A beautiful day was had!
We decided to stay in and cook together! So that’s what we did.
We made homemade pasta!
All the ingredients for pasta are in your pantry!
Mix all the ingredients together in a stand up mixer or in a food processor until they come together and form a ball.
Place the ball of dough on the counter and knead it.
Cover it with a tea towel and let it rest for a half hour.
After a half hour roll out the dough into a rectangle.
After rolling out the dough… cut it into 4 strips.
Take one strip of dough and roll it through the pasta machine at level 1 on the dial. Do that a few times then roll it through level 2 a few times…
After changing the dial to level 3 and 4 your little strip of dough looks like this…
Then take that dough and roll it through the cutting part of the pasta machine.
Repeat all steps with all strips of dough and this is what you get.
The pasta can dry for a few hours. But remember it is fresh pasta so it cooks in about 3 minutes. I drained the pasta then…
I tossed the pasta with roasted asparagus, baked salmon and olive oil.
This was then accompanied with lobster tails because it was Valentine’s Day!
After dinner it was time to go watch the sunset…
I hope you all had a wonderful Valentine’s Day!
Until Next Time ~Nancy
