Try Your Hand at Pasta
We’ll let you in on a little Italian Grandma secret: Making fresh pasta isn’t hard. If you can build a sandcastle, you can make pasta dough. The classic recipe is simply flour, water, salt, and eggs, all mixed together then kneaded to a silky, springy ball. You don’t even need a fancy machine! Homestyle shapes like gnocchi and orecchiette can be shaped on the back of a grater or fork.
