Getting In Touch With Our Inner-Italian

Although neither of us have any Italian what so ever... Scott had been wanting a pasta maker for a long time, so we bought one with some of our wedding money... Last week was definitely a learning experience and a very late dinner as a result... Our spaghetti and meatballs (everything made from scratch!) was good none the less and looked like we were going to feed all of Lima with it... This week we adventured into flavored pasta, tortellinis and raviolis.... We again probably over did it on the product but have chosen to freeze some and go with a jar of alfredo sauce rather than doing that from scratch today... Well here are some picture highlights of our adventure today! Who knew I was a natural born tortellini making machine!

Scott rolling the dough

My first tortellini
That's a chicken, garlic, parsley, oregano filling for the tortellini
This is how I assemble my awesome tortellinis
Cut off the excess
fold up
And then fold the other two ends together and ta-da!
The camera battery died between then and now! But again we made a feast!
 Because we had so much chicken filling we used that for tortellinis and took our cheese mixture and made 4 cheese raviolis.... And why is our pasta orange? That's because it's tomato pasta!!! Next time we are going to try and make spinach pasta :)
