Usually things get out of hand unless we make a good frittata or omelettes every week - but this week I decided to use up some eggs by making delicious pasta from scratch.
I consulted one of my favourite recipe books -The Silver Spoon for a good pasta dough recipe.
I was lucky enough to get a pasta roller attachment for the KitchenAid for Christmas - and although I'd made lasagne sheets before this was my first time making any other kind.
It's actually amazing how easy it is to use.
I don't have any of the cutting attachments so I hand cut the sheets into pappardelle using a rolling pizza cutter which was easy enough - I think I just need something to hang them off for next time - it was pretty laborious peeling each one off to drop into the pot.
And here is the finished product - with coppa ham, brown mushrooms and ricotta. Yum!
