WEEK #14 – PASTA
For the longest time I thought making pasta was too hard and too time consuming. I even tried it once a long time ago using an attachment on my mixer, but it didn’t work…it just fell apart. I was so disappointed in myself…why couldn’t I do this? I could make and decorate wedding cakes, but I couldn’t make pasta! So frustrating.
As I attempted to make it again, I realized that I wasn’t adding enough water. I just blindly followed the recipe I was given and assumed it would work. However, some recipes always need to be tweaked depending on your humidity, heat, feet above sea level. Seriously…it was an ah-ha moment for me!
If you make start to roll out your through the machine and it just crumbles and falls apart then put it back into the pile of dough and add water by the teaspoon full. Work it in and try again. If you make it enough you will get a feel for what it should feel like when you knead it.
