I adore pasta. Any kind, any flavor. I could eat a pasta dish every single day, and my heart would be incredibly happy. That’s why I was ecstatic to receive a pasta roller and cutter for our Bosch from my grandma for Christmas.
I don’t know how often, if ever, I’ve mentioned our Bosch mixer, but it is my absolute favorite! We use it for everything, and have some really fun attachments, plus our new pasta roller!
I was a little bit nervous to use our pasta roller, as I was worried it would be really tricky to use. I was completely wrong! It was so easy to set up – all I had to do was remove the bowl, attach the pasta maker, and turn it on its side.
We used the roller first, to get the dough completely flat and all the same width. We made two different batches of noodles using our attachments: angel hair and fettuccine.
We dried our fettuccine noodles and used them a few days later, which worked out perfectly!
These noodles were the most delicious noodles we’d ever had! They were good enough that they would even be great with nothing on them at all. With all of the sauce, veggies, and meat added, they made the most delicious pasta dishes we’d ever had!
Homemade Egg Noodles
Recipe adapted from Allrecipes.com.
- 2 cups white flour
- 1/2 cup wheat flour
- 1 pinch salt
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 tablespoon butter
- In a large bowl, stir together the flour and salt. Add the beaten eggs, milk, and butter. Knead dough until smooth, about 5 minutes. Let rest in a covered bowl for 10 minutes.
- On a floured surface, roll out to 1/8 inch or 1/4 inch thickness. Cut into desired lengths and shapes. If you have a pasta roller and cutter, run through the attachments instead.
- Cook pasta in a large pot of boiling, salted water until al dente. It took our angel hair pasta 4 minutes, and our fettuccine 7-8 minutes.
