Homemade pasta: yellow, green and others

yellow homemade pasta

Yes, homemade pasta takes some time.

How it could be improved? By bread maker machine, by dough mixer, by pasta maker and by your family enthusiasts. I use Marcato Atlas 150 and am totally satisfied.

Marcato has many accessories for different types of pasta. My favourite one is fettuccine. And no, I don’t have pastadrive: sometime it’s necessary to be in slowdown.

As for drying it’s better to use wood stand with many sticks for the process.

But just to leave for drying on a table is also a good decision.

How to make pasta? Ask children to help you. Have some fun. Take photos of the process. Making pasta is a lot of playfulness. In my opinion it will be a good memory in a future.

Homemade pasta is delicious like every homemade dish.
It’s healthy.
