Store bought pasta is one of the most convenient foods around and the dried pasta can be stored in your pantry for a very long time but fresh pasta has a delicate flavor and texture that makes it worth the extra effort. With so many fresh pastas available today why should you make your own? The main reason I like making homemade pasta is because I can control the ingredients and flavors. Store bought fresh pasta contains preservatives and chemicals that can easily be avoided when you make your own pasta. You are also limited only by your imagination when choosing the flavors of your own pasta. Homemade ravioli is best because you can fill it with anything you want and you can avoid the high fat meats common in many commercially prepared ravioli. Homemade pasta is not difficult at all to make once you learn how to make the dough and how to cut your fresh pasta into your desired shape. It is even possible to make chocolate pasta! Do you need a Pasta Machine? It is quite possible to make homemade pasta dough and simply cut it with a knife on a cutting board however a pasta machine will take the work out of some of the kneading and will give your dough a good consistency and uniform thickness.
Remember you can keep parboiled pasta refrigerated for up to six hours. You are saying but you cannot coat pasta with olive oil as the sauce will not adhere to the pasta. This is true but we are working with parboiled pasta not fully cooked so that rule does not apply. You have planned your dinner meal with recipes on pasta which will state to bring a large pot of salted water to boil before adding the parboiled pasta (the pasta has become soft while in the fridge it is fine). Now allow it to cook for about 2 minutes before draining with a colander. Serve as per instructions from recipes on pasta. I hope you take this tip from recipes on pasta to heart as it will save you time especially if you are cooking for a larger than normal function at home.
Manual pasta machines have been around since pasta was introduced by the Arabs to the Italians in the 8th century. Italians fell in love with this new food and began the trend of making fresh pasta in different sizes and shapes. The Italians are credited for inventing most of the different varieties of pasta that we can enjoy today. After you have tasted good fresh pasta you will learn that there is no comparison between the dried and fresh. Fresh just tastes better. It is simple and fast to make for any meal. You can make the pasta dough ahead of time. The dough can be kept in the refrigerator for up to 2 days before it goes bad. Learning how to make fresh pasta is fun and rewarding. It s not hard and you can even get the kids to help. In fact it is a great way to introduce nutritious homemade cooking to your kids.
