This Mother’s Day my Mother wanted to start a new tradition. She recently picked up all the add-ons for her Kitchen Aid mixer to make pasta (without the turn crank we were all used to) and thought it would be a fun way to spend her day.
My Sister, Mother and Grandmother spent the day turning out fresh pasta with two separate homemade sauces – my mother’s signature red sauce and a light white clam sauce.
Fresh pasta is one of the simplest recipes and it cooks up in a flash. Whipping up more than one sauce also adds some nice variety and fun. It’s great to hear who prefers what sauce and serve each up tapas style.
Our Pasta Recipe:
– 2 cups of all purpose flour
– 2 cups of semolina flour
– 6 eggs
– pinch of salt
– 2 tablespoons of olive oil
We munched on some homemade bruschetta and enjoyed plenty of wine while we cooked. It was a great low key day of doing something all together and it was a blast. How did you celebrate Mother’s Day?
