Making Fettuccine..at Home!






















So, when I was at East Bay Restaurant Supply last Saturday, I bought these pasta making attachments for my old KitchenAid Mixer! Dave and I had a blast making the dough (from Biba's book) and then putting it through the machine! It is so much fun. I added some fresh ground pepper, parsley and thyme to the eggs before I added the flour.


I don't have a pasta drying rack, but I got creative and all was well. It was so easy, I don't think I'll ever buy pasta again. (well, that's not true) The sauce for the pasta was a kind of beef stroganoff sauce...I know, not very summer-like, but delicious! A Greek salad on the side!

How much does it cost for a batch - how does it compare to buying fresh deli pasta, for example?

I don't know. How fresh is that deli pasta I wonder?

I used 2 cups of flour and 4 large eggs..a pinch of salt, and a bit of water.

WOW, I am impressed. Bring along your attachments and make us some! he he he... just kidding, but I would love to try it. How much were the attachments? Sounds like something Elaina would like.

Wow! It seems like a good buy! I have my eye on shopping at EBRS,feels like I am in Disneyland when I am there (atleast for me)

Dear DIL.

You have a kitchenaid, right? That's why you suggest I bring my attachments?

The guy gave me a break on em...I paid 130.00 for the box of 3 attachments.

No delis here, but there are Mom & Pop's all over, many Italian, and some make & sell various noodles fresh. Sausage too. Not so much in the way of Asian foods, but European stuff is all over the place, just pick a nationality and find a 'corner store'. (Why do they always seem to be on a corner???)

Yeah, I have the mixer, just not the pasta attachment. I will look for the attachments here.

Sounds so yum!
