I’ve never been a huge fan of pasta dishes, but recently that changed after a distant cousin of mine flew over from Italy with some fabulous recipes up his sleeve.
They were unbelievable although he brought over some of his home made pasta which is what I think actually made the dish as good as it was. I don’t think supermarket pasta would have made the grade, and personally think the dishes would have been a lot less tasty without the homemade pasta from him!
I got the bug!
Once he left and headed back to Italy I found myself really missing his pasta dishes and decided to purchase one for myself on the internet. I found one!
I got my very first pasta machine from a cool online shop called AMOS who sell a wide variety of trendy electronics, gadgets and other good stuff. It’s a very high quality machine and I can’t stop using it. It’s just brilliant.
My friends are loving it too because I’m now constantly inviting them around for food and a movie which saves all of us money, wohoo!
3 tasty dishes!
It’s easy to assume that there are very limited dishes that can be made with this homemade pasta, but you’d be wrong. Very wrong, in fact.
My cousin left 3 different recipes with me, all of which used this great homemade pasta which is just cooked slightly differently for each different dish – slightly undercooked, cooked right and overcooked. Kinda strange, right?
All of the dishes use tasty sauces and meatballs, as you’d expect.
If you’re more daring than me, I’d highly recommend getting a pasta machine and just playing around with different heats and cooking times to get pasta that resonates perfectly with your own created dishes. You will probably surprise yourself and come out with something that tastes better than any fine restaurant.
Good luck – let me know how you get on!
