so, on this lazy saturday....
hard wheat semolina flour, fresh eggs, and a splash of olive oil
from our local italian deli
was transformed into...
the boy and the girl each took turns turning the pasta machine wheel.
(i did man the helm.)
encouraged by the supple result, i mixed up some chicken,
romano, bread crumbs, basil, roasted red pepper and an egg,
for yummy raviolis.
with the kiddies looking at books and quietly playing,
i got to talk to my brother and sister-in-law
on the phone during the process...
felt like a little kitchen party.
the results were well worth the "effort".
so much that i almost forgot to take the 'finished product' shot...
please, do try this at home;
with a shaving of parmesan,
a drop of black truffle oil
crackle of black pepper...
