Some friends came over recently and we made pasta together. It was ridiculously fun. One of them has a pasta roller, so we clamped that to my counter and went to town. I have some fun photos to share with you, but the actual recipe I’m including was not part of our pasta party. It’s just a really good tomato sauce that I like to make. Check the comments to see alfredo sauce and homemade pasta recipes that Pete shared.
Pete and Sarah have the genius solution of drying the pasta on a (clean) clothes drying rack. Worked perfectly!
Pete and Jonathan made an extra long strand of pasta. You can see the pride in their faces.
Courtney and I made some fettuccine. To go along with it, Pete made a delicious creamy alfredo sauce. He and Sarah also brought some red sauce they had made previously. Doesn’t the fettuccine just look beautiful?
I whipped up some mushroom-pecan pate (LOVE my new food processor) to use as a ravioli filling. The ravioli attachment worked well, but I don’t think we were experienced enough with it to make consistently contained raviolis. So, we resorted to making them by hand, which resulted in some really giant raviolis. Still delicious, though. Topped with the creamy alfredo sauce, it was truly decadent.
You can imagine just how excited we were to eat this feast.
We even made chocolate gnocchi. Dessert pasta?! Yes. It actually turned out more like flavorless tootsie rolls than something sweet. We doctored it up with chocolate sorbet, homemade whipped cream, and homemade fudge and then it was delicious.
