Dinners aren’t always easy. In our house, the more veggies we introduce, the more blank stares we receive. Always a winner for us? Pasta. Sometimes we can’t fight it and I reach for the box. Seeing Stella make pasta with her family in Italy made it us think… Is this something we could actually do as a family in our own home? Turns out it is! The entire family had a ton of fun and the results were absolutely delicious. Give it a try and let us know what you think.
With a little patience and a lot of flour, Nonna taught Stella how to mix the egg into the flour gently, roll out the dough and pass it through the machine. In the end, it turned out to be some of the best pasta Stella had ever had and she’ll always remember the time Nonna taught her how to make it (in Italy!).Pasta comes in all shapes and sizes, from itty-bitty bowties to long, fat strands of spaghetti. If you’re making homemade pasta, we suggest making fettuccine or pappardelle – both thicker strands and less likely to break. As for a sauce, a little olive oil and Parmesan cheese will be delightful, but if you’re serving a large group we recommend pairing these delicious noodles with Nonna’s pasta sauce or a light pesto.
