Fresh Pasta

My roommate and I have a small obsession with making fresh pasta. Who wouldn't? So stinking easy I don't know why we don't make it every single day.

3 eggs, 2 1/4 cups flour and a pinch of salt mixed together slowly on the table top. We also added some fresh black pepper - it could have used a bit more. Mixed it all together on the table top and let it sit for at least 20 minutes.

Then we split the dough in half so it was easier to work with - rolling it out slowly through the machine and thinner each time.


Also here are a couple of nice shots from yesterday's how2heroes shoot with my good friend and amazing athlete Linda. One-Pot Peanut and Chicken Soup - recipe coming soon!


  1. You're lucky, I often wish that I had a roommate that loves food as much as I do. My boyfriend has little to no interest in helping me make pasta, which is kind of hard to do alone as the kitchenaid attachment that I use spews out spaghetti faster than I can spread it out to dry!
