This is a really great, simple weeknight dinner. (And don’t just take my word for it, Deb over at Smitten Kitchen likes it as well.) I’m not saying it’s ground-breaking or mind-blowing, but it’s pretty close to the top of the “things to make for dinner in 15 min without resorting to pre-made” list. And some nights that’s just what you want.
My parents gave me a pasta roller for Christmas this year. Now that I have one, I’m not quite sure how I managed not to have one for so long. It’s not like I can claim I didn’t know how much better fresh, homemade pasta is than the dried, boxed stuff. (And if you’ve never had it fresh, trust me on this one, really.) I learned to make it at Kendall and worked with it during my externship at Green Dolphin Street. I guess what matters is that it’s back in my repertoire now.
