I got hooked on homemade pasta when I tried Olga's Recipe. I like using her recipe when I have egg yolks left over, after baking Macarons. But during the days we don't have egg yolks laying around, I've been sticking to this recipe.
Making homemade pasta by hand is very simple, because pasta dough is easy to work with. As a bonus, you're getting a nice upper body work out, while rolling out the dough. :)
This is one of those universal dishes, which everyone likes. I often prepare this with Alfredo Sauce when we're hosting people we don't know. It always does it's job and people come back asking for the recipe!
Note: Homemade pasta cooks much quicker than dry store bough pasta, just keep an eye out not to over cook it.
