I was feeling adventurous last week and decided to try my hand at pasta making. Nothing fancy, just something I could make with my hands and a couple ingredients (since my kitchen tools are still pretty sparse!). I saw a delicious Mario Batali recipe and my mom was coming over for dinner, so I figured what the heck.
MAKING the dough is super easy. Flour, water, BAM.
SHAPING it into what I wanted was another story. Orrecchiette is meant to resemble little ears. Mine were more like Frisbees, but they were still delicious!
Add a bunch of kale (instead of the broccoli rabe) and some spicy Italian sausage, and you've got a treat.
I'll definitely try it again. Practice makes perfect!
