DELICIOUS HOMEMADE PASTA
Whenever I prepare homemade pasta, I’m automatically transported back to when I was a small child in my mother’s kitchen. She never bought prepared pasta, but would always make it from scratch. I still recall watching her knead the flour and eggs together with a pinch of salt. She would use a special long rolling pin that was very thick in the center and thin at the edges, which was perfect for making varying size and shape macaroni pieces. My mother would prepare a spicy sauce with chili and bell peppers that cooked over a very low flame for hours and hours. She was always checking to see if it was ready yet.
We surely don’t need to wait for a special occasion to prepare a delicious spaghetti sauce with fresh tomatoes, olive oil, garlic and peppers. In my opinion, preparing homemade pasta is a great way to bring the whole family together, and so is a worthwhile endeavor despite the extra time and effort it requires.
