Pasta Day ..Part 2.
Which did I prefer? The hand made ,hand rolled? Or food processor made,machine rollled?
I loved making both..
The small affordable machine worked charmingly for me..
Effortless.. easy clean up..no sticking no fuss no muss..
I cannot wait to try more variations..more colors:)
Jacques bought an apron in Florence..next time I will dress for the part:)
I loved Florence!
He rarely buys souvenirs..but like me..enjoys aprons I guess:)
The recipe that I used for the pasta is from Josée Di Stasio's Cookbook..Pasta et cetera...
Elena Faita co-owner of Dante is recognized as the author of it.(I love that store!)
3 cups of 00 flour(which I did not have ..now I do..I used regular unbleached flour)
4 large eggs
2 tbsps evoo
2-3 tbsps water at need
Sift flour as a well..add eggs and oil in center and start whipping w/ fork incorporating the flour little by little.... Knead 10 mins.. wrap for 10-30 mins.. roll and cut..
Or place flour eggs and oil in a food processor until it comes together and knead 10 ins(That's what I did)..
I used the machine to make my shapes..
I can't wait to make it again..
