the italians would be proud

Gwen, a very thoughtful and sweet lady from our church heard me say that one day I would like to find a pasta machine to make my own pasta, and at Christmas time she handed us a nicely wrapped box with a brand new pasta machine in it!

So this morning Dan and I decided to play around with it and make lasagna noodles for our lasagna tonight. It's actually quite easy to make your own pasta, and so much fun!

After we got bored making lasagna noodles we decided to try some spaghetti......I felt like a little kid with a play-dough machine....very fun. I would like to think that the thousands of Italians in Sault Ste Marie would be impressed.


  1. fresh pasta is so so good.

  2. I've been making fresh pasta too! My mother in law bought an automatic pasta maker and lent it to me. I had fun making white and whole wheat pasta. It was a little tricky to get the right consistency, but it turned out well! I even froze some of it to use in chicken noodle soup in the future.

    Yum, homemade chicken noodle soup... Maybe I'll make some for lunch. :) Gotta go!

  3. Wow, very industrious of you! Sounds too much like work to me...but I am lazy!

  4. Looking at those pictures makes me feel guilty, because I got a pasta machine a couple years ago for my birthday and it is still sitting in the box. Sigh, one of these days I'll try it.
