June’s activity was making homemade pasta from scratch. I got a Groupon for Eat Local, and I was very pleased with the class and overall value of the Groupon!
The class was small (I think some people didn’t make it). The instructor was great. Throughout, we were brought samples of some of their food offerings. The food was really good. We also got a plate of pasta and a small dessert. So I left feeling quite full. They offered complimentary beverages.
The recipe was three ingredients. Yes; three! Flour, eggs, and a pinch of salt.
This is something I would do again, if I had a pasta making machine. Hint hint. If anyone wants to invest in one for me or give me their old one. I would make some pasta for you.
The three ingredients
I made a mound with two cups of flour, and cracked three large eggs in the center.
Action Shot: I used a fork to bring the flour, pinch of salt, and eggs together.
Wrapped and sat aside for 15 minutes.
Cut the dough in half, and used this apparatus to do one half at a time.
Stretching the dough out.
I decided to make spaghetti noodles.
Action Shot: Making my pasta!
My pasta to take home.
