Flour and Eggs
here we used organic free range chicken eggs
actually it's pretty easy to make pasta
but I still can't
more like refused to!!!
well when there's someone making them so well, I was just lazy to learn
JS decided to be a lil bit creative and added some thinly sliced shallots
to make the pasta more fragrant....he fried the shallots
which were to be added unto the dough later, together with some of its oil
a Pasta Machine
well if u haven't seen one.....kekkekee
one of the most under-used machine at home
only egg yolks were used
the color of the pasta depends on your yolk
normal commercialised chicken eggs won't give u such color
think he used 9 egg yolks :P
how come so yellow???
did u add colourings???
then u let the dough rest for a while....errr did u??
I forgot :P
JS bought the motorised pasta machine a few years ago after his pasta lesson with Chef Lino
he can't bear to roll it by hand kekekeke
well as an engineer in nature and in profession all forms of motorised human invention must be utilised to the most
roll your pasta dough to the desired thickness
in our case - thinness :P
then on the other end of the machine is the pasta "shaper"
dunno wat do u call them
u can make any width/shapes u desired - there are a few selection on the machine
dump more flour into it
basically to separate them
or u can also hang then to dry
JS invented this storage method :P
into the muffin tin
bcoz each ball is about one portion of pasta for a person
then these babies were kept in the freezer until they are ready to be used
just plonk them into the boiling hot water for a while and there u have ur fresh handmade egg pasta
since there leftover shallots oil he made a simple pasta for dinner
can't get any fresher than this hahahahhasorry horrible pic on my iPhone
on another day, he made pork + meatballs from scratch to be eaten with the pasta
was so awesome!!!!!
he even made tomato sauce fr scratch with fresh roma tomatoes
there's still plenty of bottled sauces in the freezer
can we have this again soon???? the meatballs one!!!
pls pls pls pls pls!!!!!!
