Fettuccine Making Tutorial Long Overdue

Way back in March I received my KitchenAid Pasta Maker that included the pasta attachment (initial kneading and flat broad noodle making - think lasagna or free form large ravioli) and one for fettuccine noodles. It sat on my counter for most of March until I finally got it together to make some fettuccine on my own.
I've been sou-chef to my daughter on many an occasion, but this was my first solo event. Plus Joanna's old little old Italian mamas, she uses muscles to knead the dough and a simple pasta press here.

Finally - beginning of April , I got my "first-time jitters" under control and was amazed at how quickly and easily it all came together. In fact, I promised a more detailed "how to" for the rest of you thinking this might be too complicated and challenging a project.

Finally, I published it last week (2 months after getting the attachments and more than a month after actually using them!) but somehow, I forgot to send it in to Presto Pasta Nights. How weird is that! So this week I'm sending it over to Kitchenetta at Got No Milk. She's hosting this week's Presto Pasta Night Roundup.

Hopefully you're planning on sending a dish of your own. Just email Kitchenetta: tfree123 (at) comcast (dot) net and cc me - ruth (at) 4everykitchen (dot) com See you all at the roundup on Friday!

Good for you! Have fun with it. Once you start (it took me a month) it's easy and fun.
