Steph from Stephfood was our Daring Cooks’ July hostess. Steph challenged us to make homemade noodles without the help of a motorized pasta machine. She provided us with recipes for Spätzle and Fresh Egg Pasta as well as a few delicious sauces to pair our noodles with!
So this is being posted really, really late. I blame the edema and the heat. The thought of heating up my kitchen right now just did not appeal to me. I knew I had to do it though and we had some rain yesterday so I thought it would be good to take advantage of the slight drop in temperature. I am glad I did this. Although mid project I wanted to hunt this Steph girl down and ask “why”. I stuck with it and was still getting no where. So after struggling with trying to make ravioli from scratch first, I gave up and pulled out my pasta roller. Sorry folks but I did try.I have never tried to make pasta from scratch before. I have also never used my pasta roller. My sis had sent hers to me in a huge act of kindness but with the heat pasta just hasn’t been on the menu these days. Once I pulled that out and shifted gears so to speak I did great. Now I have a better understanding of how to make it, what to do and not do and to make sure I set aside a huge chunk of time to do it. I will be doing it again for certain as I like the taste of fresh pasta better but hate paying such ridiculous prices for it. So now that I know I can, I will. So thanks to the Daring Kitchen and Steph for opening my eyes to something new and wonderful. I apologize for it’s lateness but I was a good girl and contacted the Daring Kitchen to let them know I was behind the 8 ball. You’d think this being my first challenge that I would have been on time, early even. I blame edema, and the heat, and anything else I can think of.
