Pasta Making Take Two

In July, I retook the pasta making class with Diane at Eat Local. To make a long story short, the original class was intended to be took with her. It was really fun, and I think my dough turned out better this time around.

I recommend the class. I think pasta making would be a great group activity.

Pasta Making Class

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.
