The Secret Garden….

Ok. Here’s the deal…

There is nothing secret happening here BUT a couple of great friends working on The Secret Garden came over for dinner this evening between shows…. In January, I purchased the  pasta attachment for my kitchenaid mixer and tonight was the perfect night to try it out! I made spaghetti with a sausage and pancetta tomato sauce and a gorgonzola and garlic flatbread.

This post will only show y’all how to make homemade pasta but every part of this meal was created from scratch. It took me a few tries to master the pasta, Let me tell ya…it was much harder than you think  to get to this point…(hopefully this will allow you not to go through the same trial and error!) Thanks to Todd for his ongoing advice and his free pouring…(that kept the project going!) Know that this is the edited version of the pasta making (although a series of shots of the dough issues might be fun!)…hopefully you will get a winning recipe from the getGo!

Ingredients List:

  • 3 1/2 cups of flour
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1/2 tbsp of salt

Nothing is more exciting than enjoying a meal with great friends.

I realize that not everyone has access to a kitchenaid mixer and the truth is that to make delicious homemade pasta you don’t need fancy gadgets.  Making pasta at home is cheap, easy and delicious (in fact next time i will try it without the gadget). So make it now. Stop buying it. Seriously, even if you don’t have a mixer just make it on your counter! Go and youtube how to make homemade pasta…so worth it and  cheap to do.

I can’t to hear about your pasta making stories!

Eat well

Be Happy

Laugh loudly
