First go at making homemade pasta

Bit bored today. Too hot to go outside, so I thought I’d have a go at making homemade pasta. A bit complicated for a northerner like me, but not that hard actually.

You go through various stages of dough preparation. Just flour, eggs and lots of gentle massaging, sorry kneading. Leave for an hour and roll out into round pancakes. After 15 mins roll and cut into thin strips. Hang out for another 15 mins. Then drop in boiling water for 3 mins.

The sauce consisted of yet moreĀ corgette and onions from our land, combined with cream, pesto and tarragon wine vinegar.

The result? Much nicer than the dried bought and packaged variety, especially when washed down with a some of our favourite 85 cent a litre, vino blanco!
