One of our favorite things to do is eating interesting and delicious foods. However, good food can be expensive so we realize cooking at home makes it cost-effective and fun! We have been working on our fresh pasta game but kneading by hand and a rolling pin to get the dough paper-thin is difficult. Thanks to Rich’s Mom, Shari, we received the best Christmas gift to fix this issue – a pasta machine! Here is a short film of us making fettuccine with the machine and enjoying the final product with some Santa Barbara wine. Sorry, there is no footage of the dough-making process since Instagram deleted it but we’ll try again soon (up next is Ravioli!). We can’t wait to honeymoon in Rome, Florence, and Venice to taste authentic Italian delicacies!
