Adventures in noodle making

Affiliate Disclosure | in Recipes | by | with 6 Comments

When I woke up this morning there was a perfectly good box of whole wheat fettuccine in my pantry. I looked at it . . and then decided to learn to make pasta from scratch!!! So typical of me, I know ; – )

Anyway, the best part of my passion for cooking is getting to share it with my little helper. Check her out!

Thank you Mae Burke and Katie Browning for the adorable chef hat and apron!!! Can you tell how much she likes them?

Anyway, I pulled out the trusty flour mill to Katie’s chant of “GRIND THE WHEAT! GRIND THE WHEAT!” and got down to business. All in all, the process was so simple a two year-old could do it . . . and she pretty much did! Here she is stirring the ingredients . . .

. . . and rolling the pasta

We let it dry for half an hour and then threw it in a pot of boiling water. Voila!

I thought they were a bit thick and heavy, but the family loved them and claimed I am just a finicky pregnant woman. Maybe sometime I’ll try a soaked-grain version with thinner noodles. Maybe not, but today sure was fun!

    Oh, and I can attest to the fact that the noodles were in fact very good. They were possibly 1.5 to 2 times thicker in depth than typical fettucine noodles, but the taste was on par.

    I’m impressed.
