I recently discovered a treasure at a local thrift store. This is the exact pasta machine that my mom used growing up. After giving it a good cleaning, I got busy. We really enjoy whole wheat noodles in our house. I tried to find a good ratio of white to whole wheat flour. My daughter was a great helper and really loved rolling out the noodles. We made fettucine noodles and 3 cheese ravioli from a Tyler Florence recipe. The ravioli filling started coming out but still tasted good. I am learning and my second attempt went better. I am excited for all of the healthy noodle dishes I will be trying out on my family.
