You may remember my post on making homemade gnocchi? Well this weekend Livvy and I tried our hand at making fresh spaghetti.
I had actually bought the pasta machine from Aldi three years ago for only $10.00 but its remained in its box, until now, mostly because I did not have the bench space in my old kitchen to tackle such a messy task.
It was a fun way to spend a Saturday night with the family and we all pitched in!
There's always a taste tester in the family!
and someone who likes to stir.
You can find my recipe for an authentic tomato sauce here.
Of course washing down an Italian feast with a good red is always imperative!
And if I do say so myself, we did a damn good job!
We simply followed a recipe from Taste.com and it was delicious and not too difficult! Below is the one we followed.
