Perfect Homemade Pasta

For our wedding we got the pasta attachment for our Kitchenaid Mixer. We had Janette, Stephanie, and Ang over for dinner on Sunday so we had a good excuse to try it out.

On Sunday we made the pasta dough and let it rest for twenty minutes. Utah is really dry so we had to add more water than expected, but it felt like the right consistency, so we went with it.

Josh used to work at Little Caesar’s back in the day so he claimed he was the dough king! He was right! He really worked the dough and the pasta turned out GREAT!!

We started with four mounds of pasta dough.

We had to put these through the machine multiple times.

The dough kept getting bigger and bigger!

Finally, it was thin enough. We cut it into fettucine noodles.

The noodles got really long so we cut them into thirds.

We laid the noodles out to dry. They were everywhere!

The dried noodles, ready to be boiled.

They didn’t take long to cook!

We made a fresh pasta sauce to go with our homemade noodles.

When it was time to eat we were very pleased with the results. The pasta was delicious! It was fun to make too! We can’t wait to try tortellini, ravioli, and other noodles. Thanks to Stephanie, Janette, and Ang for being our guinea pigs! It was a fun night!
