I cook dinner for 4 every night and we finally quit store bought pasta!
There was one problem.. I had no place to dry the pasta and I found that making little nests does work and looks really cute but it stays a lot better if i dry it hung up.
So I came up with this little contraption that holds a whole batch of pasta without taking up too much space. I just happened to have two empty wine bottles lying about. Although It would be fun to start with two full ones and a friend.
I just made a tiny "ax" cut in the tip of the cork with a paring knife and jammed a cooling rack into it.
ps this pasta is simply 3 cups of sifted whole wheat flour and 4 eggs. It will make enough for one lasagna and plenty left over to have a sauce-n-pasta dish another night.
