For years now I have been saying I should add a homemade pasta recipe to my culinary repertoire. However, I didn’t own a pasta maker and to be honest, the whole idea of making homemade pasta seemed a tad bit overwhelming. But it was over breakfast a few weeks ago that I finally realized making pasta from scratch might actually be doable…
It was over a rather ho-hum and uninspiring weekend breakfast of oatmeal, fruit and chia seeds a few weeks ago that I casually mentioned to my husband and son that I should make something “exciting” for dinner. Our son, Blake, immediately contributed to the conversation by saying that I should stop talking about making homemade pasta and actually make it. To circumvent any resistance on my part, Blake quickly did an iPad Google search and stumbled on the video below (scroll down) demonstrating how the Atlas Marcato 150 Italian-made pasta maker proves making pasta from scratch is easy as pie.
- 3 cups organic spinach
- 2 organic, pastured eggs (such as Vital Farms )
- ½ teaspoon unrefined sea salt
- 3 cups whole wheat pastry flour
