So, as part of Mothers Day, I made pasta for dinner.
The machine, flour and eggs - all you need!
You run the dough through rollers in the machine several times, with the rollers closer together each time
By the time I finish the table is covered with thin sheets of pasta.
With a chicken in the oven and the pasta rolled (I find it is good to let it dry slightly before cutting it into tagliatelle) I took the dogs for a walk. The weather was horrible today - we got caught in rain/snow/hail. Mrs RC was settled on the sofa watching True Blood DVDs with Cherry Coke and chocolate at hand. I think she got a good deal there, don't you?
Back in the kitchen and slicing the pasta into strips.
The finished product in cheese sauce, with chicken, garlic bread and pesto on the side. Mrs RC supplied the basil garnish at the last moment. Mmmmm, good stuff. Now all I have to do is tackle the washing up!
