Ok, so you start with eggs, salt, semolina flour, and water. I do not have an exact recipe for this, it is a "feely" type thing. It really just depends on the size of your eggs, how much moisture is in the air, etc. Sorry.

Then you can either freeze sheets of pasta for lasagna, you can roll them up, and cut them wide for papardelle, or you can put them through a cutter for fettucine or spaghetti. I like to freeze fettucine, so that's what I did.

You can either cook these right away, you can dry them, keep them in the fridge, or freeze them. In the fridge, use them within a week. Frozen, they will keep for up to 3 months. I like to weigh mine out into 4 ounce portions. SO, with 5 eggs, a little flour, I got 2 and 1/2 pounds of pasta. YUM YUM!!!
|Into the freezer they go! Sorry, this pic is sideways :(|
SO THEN I was using the little shopvac to clean up the flour that was now all over the floor, and I pulled the cord a little too tight, and knock a completely full cup of coffee onto the floor. So then I had to clean that up.
OH and while I was at the market, I ran into my supervisor from work. It was fine, but weird. Kind of like being a kid and seeing your teacher at the grocery store in her sweats. Can I start today over???
