So this Christmas my mother asked what I would like. I instantly replied "A pasta maker!" But not just any pasta maker, I wanted a non electric one. That way if we loose power and I feel the urge to whip up a bunch of noodles I can! You can also use the roller to make homemade crackers.
Well my mom obliged her strange daughter and I got a beautiful new hand operated pasta maker for Christmas.
Today I made chicken n' dumplings from the roast chicken we had for dinner last night and I decided to make home made egg noodles instead of using store bought.
It was an adventure and really fun. Even eldest daughter got into the act!
It just takes flour and eggs
The mixed and kneaded doe
Roll through several times
Into the pot
Time to eat!
These were so good. I can't believe the difference in flavor and texture. The children asked for thirds, and while they love noodles this was a hit. Definitely worth the trouble.
