15April2014 Luke’s Inner Italian Grandmama

Luke decided tonight that he wanted to make fresh pasta from scratch for dinner – perhaps related to his working clay through our extra pasta roller? I gave him a simple recipe (400 grams of all purpose flour plus 4 eggs), and using the stand mixer to get the dough started, he very quickly had a ball of dough resting in plastic awaiting the roller. He needed a little practice flooring the dough as he rolled it through (so the strands don’t stick together), but he had a plate of noodles ready for the water in no time at all. Happy boy, or should I say, a happy Italian grandmama?
