Early Christmas Present

My Recipes

Stephanie and I usually exchange Christmas gifts early because we’re not good with suprises.  Last year she decided to blow my mind and get me a Shun chef’s knife.  This year, she followed up quite nicely…


That would be an Imperia pasta machine.  No more store bought pasta for me.  It’s all homemade from here on out!  It’s going to be woooooonderful.

Anyways, I’ve never made pasta before and I heard it’s a rough process the first few times.  Anyone have some experience with this?  Any tips you can offer me? I’m going to stick with The Food in my Beard’s guide for the first couple times, but after that I like to come up with my own methods.
