Lasagna and Homemade Whole Wheat Pasta

I recently got a new toy for my kitchen aid – the pasta attachment!

This was my first attachment piece and its so neat – attaches right at the front. It came with a pasta roller, fettuccine, and spaghetti cutter. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t secretly want this… for a while. Well, C somehow knew and surprised me with it for an early b-day gift. I love it!

Baked Whole Wheat Vegetable Samosas

So remember how I said I wouldn’t be posting for a while? I kind of take that back… I shall try my best. The last five posts were written about a month ago, so I actually haven’t written anything for a while now.

Update on what’s been happening in my life: I’m at the tail end of my practicum… about one month left, then out into the real world!

All in all, I’m glad I can finally say that I can now see the finish-line and feel ready to be done.

Five-cheese Ravioli

C and I recently had dinner at Rocky Mountain Flatbread – we ordered the Chef’s pasta special and a flatbread pizza. Both were amazing dishes that had great flavours. Though the flatbread was my favourite of the two, I really enjoyed the texture of the pasta itself.

Definitely didn’t taste like the commercial dried packaged pasta that we usually make at home. Anyhow, this sparked my curiosity to try making my own pasta. I don’t have a pasta rolling machine, so I had to use my rolling pin instead. All good, was more of a workout anyway =P
