La Pasta Fatta in Casa
Last Sunday I asked my son Kevin what he’d prefer to have for dinner and he immediately answered:”La pasta, mamma… quella che si succhia” (pasta mom, the one that you can slurp)! Certo, of course, I answered… buona idea! Our pasta ‘che si succhia’ is actually our home made tagliatelle. You might think that it takes long time to make tagliatelle from scratch, but it does not. We
discovered ourselves that this event brings our family together, it is fun and it takes only half an hour. In the old times it took much longer, though. I remember my grandmother making it all the time as I remember my mother making it…. sometimes (she was working).
BUT we do have our ‘asso nella manica’ (ace up the sleeve). Guardate le foto e scoprirete i nostri segreti (take a look at the pictures and you’ll find out our secrets).
I almost forgot that during the time we made the pasta… we cooked our ragù (you call it Bolognese…)… yes, we cooked our ragù in half an hour. This is a great recipe from my father… I’ll tell you about it soon possible!
Ps: la ricetta per la pasta is also coming soon! Carolina
