I mixed up the dough in the Thermomix however you don't need one of these to make pasta as Rhonda from Down to Earth explains here. My pasta machine was $15 from Kmart has has just 2 settings being fettucini and spaghetti which is fine for us and of course you can make lasagne sheets as well.
I didn't have time to take the eggs out of the fridge before I made it but went ahead with it anyway. The pasta was actually so much better because it was thinner and none of it stuck together in the pot and the kids gave it the thumbs up. So for dinner we had home made pasta, home made Bolognese and home made Vanilla Bean Ice Cream for dessert. It all felt pretty good really. Thrilled that I had another go at this as the pasta is great and as I didn't make the whole recipe I put the rest of it in cling wrap in the fridge and will make it up today. I plan on letting the pasta dry for a bit and then wrapping them in nest like balls and into the freezer for those quick dinners. I always have Bolognese in the freezer as I usually double or triple my batch when I'm making it. It's one of our family favourites in our house as you can tell from Sienna in the last photo enjoying her dinner.
