Sunday Funday. First ever attempt at making pasta 👀

Now, I just purchased this bad boy off amazon for £25 made by kitchen craft. Didn’t really take the time to read the reviews 🙄 I kinda just bought it because it yellow and it looks cool. Sucked right in 💯

Before I play, let’s start with the pasta dough. I’m told this is a straight forward one through my research 😂

No idea how much pasta this will make, but here goes….

400g of all purpose flour (I’m told the Italian OO is the best, but where am I getting hold of that right now?)

4 eggs 🥚

Pop it all in a blender and wazzz it up
Throw the mix onto your floured surface
Knead it for a few minutes. Then wrap in cling film and place in the fridge for 30 mins

Now while that’s doing it’s thing, it’s time to get the machine ready. Like most things these days, there’s a YouTube video for everything, so I’ve done my research that way 😂

Now I’ve cleaned and floured up the machine and got it set to it widest setting. Here goes nothing…..

Screwed it and realised it needed clamping down 🤦‍♂️ Definitely make sure you clamp it down…..other it goes flying 😂

Flatten out the dough from the fridge
Start on the widest setting, which is my case was numbered ‘1’
Number 2
Number 3
Number 4
Number 5
Number 8 (you got the drill by now)
Pretty pasta sheets ❤️❤️❤️

Now time for the cutting. Going for a tagliatelle 😋

Nervous 😬
Phew 😅

Then to finish off, I pretended like I’m artsy, grabbed a clothes hanger and left it do it’s thing. Pretty happy with the first ever attempt, the real test is in the taste which I’ll find out later on this evening 😋

That’s all for now folks 👋
