So, I finally made use of the pasta machine I got for Christmas (thanks again Holly!)
Tonight was spaghetti and meatball night, so I figured I'd make some homemade noodles. Honestly, it was a lot easier than I figured it would be. The dough whipped up quickly, and the kids had so much fun helping me run it through the machine.
See? Happiness! Actually, they fought over who got to turn the crank next. Sigh. We all came to a nice happy agreement that Landon would turn it, and Kenzee would help me pull out the dough. Worked out great and both kids were happy. Whew! :0)
These are my uncooked noodles. As you can tell with the top noodles...Kenzee got a little carried away with the flour. :0) These are wheat noodles people....those noodles are white. Silly girl.
They were sooo yummy too! And now..I want homemade noodles EVERY time. So, if you have a great pasta dough recipe for me can you pretty please pass it on? They sell great flavored pastas at the store, I'd love to make some at home. Garlic fettucinne...mmmm....
Anyway...fun night in the kitchen! We'll have to do this more often!
