Story
I first made pasta with my grandmother when I was about 10 I think. The very next day I tried it myself and it was a disaster. I kept trying it until I got it down. After seeing how easy it is to make your own pasta it will be hard for you to eat dried boxed pasta. I still do it, but would always rather eat my own... :) Nikko
Here is a recipe for home food buffs who like their food fresh. Homemade pasta sounds like a herculean task but Nikko makes it look like a child's play. If your attempt to making pasta was a disastrous one then you must follow Nikko's step by step guide to making pasta from scratch. He is taking us through a photo journey with interesting background music for a fun filled pasta making time.
