Making pasta from scratch:
Recipe taken from My Kitchen Rules website - http://au.tv.yahoo.com/my-kitchen-rules/recipes/article/-/9018190/porcini-fettuccine-with-roasted-hazelnuts/
So very yum scrum:Preparing the dried porcini mushrooms for the pasta mix. (I wouldn't bother with this next time.)
My first ever batch of pasta dough:
Rollin', rollin', rollin'
The dough didn't want to go through the cutters beyond what is shown here, so I ended up cutting the rest by hand.
Drying - this shot was taken before the 'pasta disaster' where a lot of it got stuck and ended up on the floor.
The hazelnut pesto was very tasty indeed:
All in all, I voted the pasta experience a success and will be getting the roller out again soon. I will however learn from my rookie mistake of putting all the pasta sheets on top of each other - this lead to sticking and some rather chunky pieces. Never mind - we live and learn. :-)
