The home made egg pasta

Home made pasta has an old tradition: tagliatelle, tagliolini, lasagna, ravioli, tortellini and maltagliati were made from the egg pasta dough many years ago already.

Home made pasta was for our grandmothers the only pasta available for their families; it was prepared on Sunday and consumed during the week.

Nowadays, women who work do not have much time to dedicate to cooking and can seldom prepare a dish of home made tagliatelle.

Yet, altogether, it doesn’t take much time to prepare it: 15/20 minutes to combine the ingredients and knead the dough, 15 minutes to roll the dough out, 30 minutes to dry the pasta (time varies according the the season and the environmental humidity level), 2 minutes to cook it…it takes just one hour to organise a fantastic dinner with friends!

Furthermore, we should not forget that we can freeze it and consume it later, just note that in this case cook time is 5 minutes instead of 2.
