The mountain man got a pasta machine for Christmas! We couldn’t wait to try it out.
We started with 2 cups of flour and two eggs. Pretty easy, right?
And we mixed it together. Because we were using whole-wheat AP flour we had to add some warm water to get it to a good malleable consistency. Good thing we had some warm still in the kettle!
While we mixed the pasta dough, the Baby Pie found her toes.
And she learned the double toe lock.
And Mama started the sauce, made from some leftover Christmas brisket & the tomato-wine sauce.
After running it through the machine it looked like this. We let it rest again before cutting it.
Next we ran the dough through the cutter.
And it made a pretty pile.
Then we dried it for a few minutes before popping it in the water.
And for dessert, the mountain man and I shared some of the tart, sweet, creamy and fantastic cheesecake with almond-lemon-blackberry topping.
