Quick and Easy! No Pasta Machine Required

After leaving my full time career to be a work at home mom, I decided that I needed to put a bit more effort into what my family was eating. I began making everything that I could from scratch but for some reason was scared to try pasta! I had always heard that it was difficult to get right.....that was until I tried this recipe.

I have used this pasta for noodles, ravioli, even fresh lasagna sheets and it is truly is one of the easiest pasta recipes out there. Its a traditional egg pasta but I have tweaked it to make it a bit healthier by using whole wheat flour. You can of course use any flour you would like.

There is little time involved in making this pasta as it is cooked immediately and does not require drying.

Add Extra ZING to your pasta by adding fresh herbs into your dough! Fresh basil, garlic, oregano....anything you like can be added to enhance the flavor.
