So...for the new year, one of my resolutions is to get better at cooking, but to know the foods I'm putting in my body...staying away from colorings, preservatives and eat more whole foods. And no more meat. Wink (well..try anyway)
I made pasta last night...super easy and worth the time..Here's the meal finished....
the pasta is mixed with garlic, carrots, broccoli, olive oil and butter that I cooked up first.....

I started with four eggs, two cups flour, pinch of salt, and a bit of olive oil....now.......kneed...kneed...kneed..when you think you've kneeded enough..kneed a little more...go for at least 10 minutes, you need it really firm then let it rest a bit

roll it out really thin... and cut with a pizza cutter into thin strips

 boil and salt your water and cook your pasta only 2 to 3 minutes..when it floats to the top it's done then.....
EAT!

Next time I'll get a pasta machine and make the pasta real pretty like...because after tasting homemade pasta? I'll never buy packaged again.

Looks really yummy! It's also a lot of fun to add tomato juice or spinach. It turns the dough different colors!

  Oh! I'll have to try that! This was a lot of fun and I was surprised at how good it tasted.  I think everyone should try it at least once...just to say you did it. Wink

Looks great.  And the veggies make it look yummmmmmy. 

You've inspired me to make my own pasta.  My Gramma used to make her own, don't know why I haven't.  I guess I thought I needed a pasta cutter to make pasta. Cheesy

If you get a pasta machine, you don't even have to knead it! Just mix and roll!
OMG so good. Now I want to make some...

Yum! I made pasta for the first time before Christmas and was  addicted. It's so much better than any pasta I have tasted - even in Italy. I have a cheap pasta machine. I made ravioli and tagliatelli.

Homemade pasta is the best. If you are making Italian w/ a marinara style sauce, you can put some of the herbs straight into the noodles, and it enhances the whole flavor. I lucked out and found a pasta machine at a thrift store for about 5 dollars and I love it. My favorite thing to make is lasagna totally from scratch. There is nothing like it.

  I totally agree..this tasted soooo good! Way better than packaged..never been to Italy but I think that's good reason to go...to see if the pasta is better...don' t ya think?  LOL

  I definitely need a pasta machine although the rolling and the cutting is pretty fun to do...it's hard to get it thin enough and I want to make some ravioli and need it pretty thin.  I'm pretty excited to add some other goodies to it too!  Making the noodles for lasagna sounds soooo yummy!  must. try.
