I am a self professed pasta lover. If I had to choose between giving up sweets and desserts or pasta, I would give up desserts. I have made my own raviolis but this week was the first time I had made noodles on my own. I am not sure why but there was this image in my head of a huge mess and lots of hours invested. I was so wrong. Making your own pasta is super easy. I played around with a recipe and found that adding a vegetable into the dough was super easy. My 6 year old daughter Maggie has inherited the love for carbs from me, however her love for vegetables changes daily. One day she is snacking on carrots and asking for kale for dinner. The next day she dislikes any and all produce. There is never a day that she says no to noodles though. We made pasta with roasted kabocha squash and it was a huge success. The squash taste is very mild but it adds such a beautiful fresh flavor.I don't think I will ever by store bought again.
