Pasta 101

Pasta Dough is fun and easy to make. In this post, Pasta 101, I will discuss the basic steps to follow in making your own pasta at home. The recipe I have included in this post is for basic egg dough and is great for all shapes and types of pasta. Spinach, beets, tomato paste, herbs and spices are some common additions that can turn this plain dough into something special. I will include those recipes in my blog also.

Pappardelle alla Norcina

Pappardelle is one of my favorite pastas. The thick, wide noodles provide a hearty bite of pasta that can stand up to any sauce. Truffles are an elegant and rewarding addition to this dish and quite necessary to be authentic, however, they are quite costly, hard to find, and can be omitted from the recipe.
