So I tried making my own Pasta

For Christmas this year, I was blessed to have such a loving family that loves my baking. I would say that most of them love me. Lets face it though, you give a person a cheesecake and their putty in your hands. So when I asked for a KitchenAid mixer, they all pitched in and got me the exact one I wanted. Not only that but I was also gifted with the pasta maker attachment!

You guys, I get to make my own carbs!

I damn near started sobbing as I unwrapped the package to the pasta attachment and drying stand. I hadn't expected this one like the mixer, heck I had told my family how to buy it for me and gave them the amazon link. But the attachment was WAY more than I thought it would be. So when I said it jokingly I didn't think it would actually happen. But it did! So I chose the New Years weekend to test it out, since we all know how social I can be.

So for New Years I tried making my own pasta....

I found some basic recipes on Pinterest, but couldn't find the one that I really wanted. So I went to my favorite source for food inspo, The Food Network. I got my basic pasta recipe, opened up a bottle of Chardonnay.

Here's the recipe:

3 1/2 Cup of flour

5 Large eggs

Step one: Build a little flour basket.

Step Two: Mix the eggs and the flour.

Step Three: Knead the shit out of it!

Step Four: Wrap in Plastic Wrap, wait 30-60 minutes, need a little more in the plastic.

Step Five: Use attachments to flatten and cut the pasta.

Viola! You have pasta!

You guys should try to make your own pasta at least once in your life.
