    Your video is great! I’ve always wanted to make homemade pasta, but for some reason I’ve never tried – think I will be giving it a go now!

    This is an awesome video! I have made fresh pasta twice before, and I also used the well method, but I was told to do it on my kitchen counter. It was so messy that I haven’t made it since! I will DEFINITELY use a bowl next time, and thanks for the variations. I can’t wait for the ravioli video!

      Oh my gosh those granite countertops we have are impossible to clean completely because you can never see crumbs, dirt, spills, or stains! Bowls are much easier to clean.

    I’ve always wanted to try and make fresh pasta, but it seemed so challenging. I love that you have a video tutorial so that we can see what you’re doing πŸ™‚
    I’m also dropping by to say that I nominated you for a blog award. I hope that’s okay! You’re blog really inspired me to start mine (I know that’s cheesy, but it’s true!) πŸ™‚

    Any chance you could film a version making dough in food processor or stand up mixer?
