My parents offered to help but being the stubborn person that I am I refused and was determined to make this on my own. Five years ago I could barely boil water, this was a big accomplishment.
I borrowed my parents pasta maker and went to work. It's a multi step process that took about 2-3 hours. In pasta making lingo, I made 6 eggs worth of pasta.
For the full recipe and how to click here. My family has a cookbook, First You Steal A Chicken, and that's where most of my recipes and ideas come from!
Step 1: Make the balls of dough with a food processor
Step 2: Spread the dough and make the sheets of pasta. Take the balls and put it through the pasta maker until you have thin sheets.
Step 3: Cut the pasta
And finally... eat up!
If you have any questions or are confused at all by the recipe I'd be happy to help. Just shoot me an email.
So now I ask, what's your biggest cooking accomplishment?
