If I were forced to choose a last meal, it would have to be Fettuccine Alfredo. Butter, cream and Parmesan cheese, oh my! I would seriously eat pasta two out of three meals a day if I didn’t know any better.
I have a love for all things noodles, but the undisputed kings of all noodles, in my book, are your classic Italian dried noodles made of just semolina, flour and water. It gives me such joy to stand in front of all the pasta boxes at the store and ponder which style I am going to procure. I’m a simple girl. It doesn’t take much to make me happy. I love short noodles, but nothing beats fettuccine or spaghetti. Mmm!
I have proudly passed down my love of all things pasta to my kids. Their favorite is any type of noodle with butter and Parmesan cheese, but I make sure to always blanch some broccoli or cauliflower and mix it in so they can at least have a more balanced meal.
Now, cooking pasta from a box might be convenient and delicious, but have you ever tried to make pasta from scratch? This, my friends, is pasta nirvana! I know what you’re thinking right now, but don’t worry… it’s not a difficult task. I swear I’m not lying!
One of my favorite classes to teach is Pasta Workshop, not only because I love the end result but also because I see so many “Ah ha” moments in class. It never fails. My students are always amazed at how easy it is to make pasta from scratch. If you’re not convinced sign up for one of our Pasta Workshop classes and you will see for yourself.
How many of you have flour, semolina and eggs at home? I bet a good 80% of you do. Now, all you need is our instructional video and you’re good to go!
I have taught people of all ages to make fresh pasta and everyone always has a great time, so what are you waiting for? I hope to see you in our next Pasta Workshop class!
I want to hear about your experiences making homemade pasta. What kind of noodles did you make and what’s your favorite sauce?
