Emma’s favorite part of the cooking class at The Essex Resort and Spa was cutting the fresh pasta. I loved seeing her face light up with joy when she saw she was actually making something delicious that we would eat later.
First we set the machine to 2 for the initial roll-through. Then we changed to the 5 setting to thin the dough once more. After attaching the cutter, we rolled our cut dough through to slice it into linguine.
I actually own a pasta crank that was my grandmother’s, so I can’t wait to try making fresh pasta at home. I’ve always been intimidated at the though of making pasta from scratch, but it really was easy! If you can make pizza dough, you can make pasta dough.
