As a follow-up to Making Homemade Pasta Noodles….they were amazing! After they dried for about 24 hours I had every intention of storing them, but I couldn’t resist. So I made spaghetti.
I wanted to know how much noodles the recipe had made so I would know how much to cook. I usually cook a one pound package of store-bought noodles for the 5 of us (which allows for a small portion of left-over for my lunch the next day). So I weighed the dried noodles, which came in at a little over 1.2 lbs. And since we like left-overs, I cooked them all. Cooking time varies from package noodles so beware.
They had an amazing flavor…which is hard to describe. Such a freshness. Better than frozen egg noodles. My family thought they were awesome. This is one thing I would make again! Emma and I have found a homemade ravioli recipe we intend to try next.
Sure it is easy to just buy the package in the store, but there is such a satisfaction of knowing you made them from scratch. And they taste soooo muchhh better! So don’t be afraid to roll-up your sleeves and get messy.
