More Pasta

My pasta love affair is not over yet. With the same dough I made for the orrechiette, I rolled out another favorite pasta shape of mine, pappardelle. This is like a big wide fettucine noodle. I rolled them out into sheets using my pasta roller and then cut them into wide strips by hand. Another mushroom based sauce was perfect for this. I sautéed garlic, onion and mushrooms in olive oil, added bit of non-fat half and half for richness and tossed in some fresh grated parmigiano reggiano. This was garnished with a bit of fresh parsley. Another satisfying pasta meal.

That homemade pasta looks goos. I like a nice mushroom pasta sauce. I really need to get a pasta roller so that I can make more interesting pasta shapes at home.

I hope your pasta love affair is never over Greg! I must have a go at making pasta - you've inspired me to get a machine!

I've tagged you for a meme by the way:
