Two things I know for sure: I love fresh pasta and I love trying to make things from scratch. So, trying to make it myself was a no-brainer! Except for one thing — I had it in my head that you need a pasta maker and my tiny apartment has no room for one. You see, I fully forgot the fact that people have been making pasta without the benefits of modern technology for thousands of years.
After a friend told me about her adventurous time making homemade pasta, I knew I had to try. All you really have to do is roll out the dough, right? And after successfully making homemade tortillas, I figured I had to take a stab at it!
** Full Disclosure: it takes a lot of arm muscle to roll out the dough. Make this with a partner and take turns with the rolling pin!
