Homemade pasta is something we tried for the first time recently. It was an attempt to find a healthier alternative to store bought pasta. We used a recipe we found online with one modification, 1/3 cup of flour substituted for whole wheat flour.
Making it was not complicated once we got used to the pasta machine. In terms of taste they tasted light and less starchy than store bought pasta. We will definitely try this option again another time.
One thing I will mention about them is that they are brittle once you dry them so you have to be careful of that. On a positive note, our kids were amused by the sight of noodles hanging to dry in the kitchen.
