Fresh or dried?

10 February 2005

I know most people wouldn’t agree, but I prefer dried pasta to fresh. I got a pasta machine from one of my friends a while ago. However, I’ve only used it TWICE – maybe I should consider to give it to someone who actually uses it. This picture was taken on one of those two occasions. I find making pasta good fun – like making bread – but since I don’t really like fresh pasta, I just don’t get motivated enough to take the machine out from the cupboard regularly… shame.

  • keiko... why don’t you make fresh pasta more often and sell it or send it to me :)

    BTW, sorry to spam your comments for the previous post by mistake... hope you can erase them.

  • Hi Keiko,

    Gorgeous shot! I’m emailing you with an idea I have for your machine...

  • Hey Keiko, you could just make the pasta and DRY it! Tee-hee! I just got a pasta machine and I already know it’s not going to be used for anything other than stuffed pasta - ravioli etc., but that’s okay - as if I didn’t have enough stuff cluttering my cupboards! Pretty picture!

  • Hi again Keiko,

    I emailed you to ask about a possible trade for your pasta machine, but you didn’t respond and a friend offered me hers today!

    I can’t wait to get started- I’ve made homemade pasta before by just rolling it out, but I’m looking forward to be able to cut it quickly and evenly with the machine.

    I hope you’re having a great weekend...

  • Hi Jocelyn - thanks for your comment, it’s plain pesto sauce; I quite like the potatoes in there.

    Hi Chika - I’m sorry I spammed back, hope you can delete it!

    Hi Dagmar - Thanks for tagging me!

    Hi Moira - I’m sorry I didn’t write back sooner, but I’m glad you had another offer! I’m sure you’ll be making beautiful pasta, looking forward to seeing your fantastic pictures too.

    Hi Zarah Maria - Oh, I never thought about it... Have you used your machine yet? Your ravioli must be delicious!

    Hi Celia - Thanks for tagging me too!

  • I use my pasta attachment for rolling out pierogi dough. It saves a lot of time and works really well. I’ve also used it for rolling out really thin dog biscuits.

  • Hi Martina - thanks for stopping by, I think it’s a great idea to use a pasta machine to make pierogi! I’ve been to Poland and had pielogi there - absolutely loved it! How sweet that you make biscuits for your doggy - in Japan, you can get so many recipe books for pets! I think they are mainly for dogs, but I have a cat and am wondering if I can make something for him...
