Pasta 101

My very sweet and thoughtful husband was paying attention. When the last williams sonoma catalog came he heard me comment on this new kitchenaid pasta maker attachment...he remembered this and then sent my good friend on a mission to find one for my birthday.
Now let this be my disclaimer...if you are a pasta maker already and are looking at these pictures and this is not what it is supposed to look like, bear in mind that i/we have never done this before...and I think this is the first time i have ever let Chris use my cuisinart or my kitchenaid. And in our happy oblivion we loved it and had fun making it together.
We were both very amused by the pile of spaghetti that was growing before our very eyes. How fun! We made this ourselves!!
It was a team effort and in the end it was so tasty....the kids loved it, we loved it....it was just yummy!! I have never had fresh pasta before...but i am pretty sure we will be having it again...possibly not every time, but again for sure!

yay!!! I have a kitchenaid, so I'll have to add that pastamaker to my wish list. I also have a williams sonoma gift card. How convenient (evil scheming laugh). You 2 are way too cute together!!! It's fun to think way back to how it all started :)

I have the mixer and have wondered if the pasta maker would be worth me getting. Please use it again and let me know....before I begin hinting for Christmas gifts. LOL
