Uses for eggs #134 – Pasta


Posted by Britton

I’ve eaten quite a bit of pasta in my day.  All sorts of different kinds from the simple spaghetti to ravioli.  Well I never really thought about how its made.  It’s pretty easy / cheap to just buy a box or two at the store.

Well someone at work mentioned making their own homemade pasta and how easy it is.  I figured I’d give it a try because we are always looking for more uses of eggs.

Step 1, mix eggs and flour.

It’s kind of fun to make a little flour dam and crack some eggs into it.  Reminds me of when I was a kid I used to make dams with my mashed potatoes and gravy.

Mix it all together, roll it out with a rolling pin and cut into whatever size you want.

We made long strips, small strips and all sorts of different shapes.  Experimentation.

Let it dry for just a bit (some say this is unnecessary). Then you boil it.

Voila!

It may seem pretty straight forward to most of you, but I just had never done it before.  I was actually surprised at how easy it was.   When you are used to buying things out of a box I just assume it must be hard to do..lol.

We also made our own Alfredo sauce to make shrimp Alfredo…very good.
