Look What I Got For $5.00!

I got a Marcato pasta press! I looked on line to price them and it sells for $150.00!!!

Just 2 cups flour, 3 eggs(from our chickens)a pinch of salt, 2 Tsp milk! In just 2 minutes you have pasta dough! Bring a large pot of salted water to a rolling boil and add pasta. Cook for 5-7 minutes and enjoy!

Top with your favorite sauce! Noah(my 7yr old) made a homemade tomato sauce from our garden tomatoes, peppers, onions and herbs! It was delicious!

My pasta roller can roll out sheets for lasagna or homemade ravioli. It does spaghetti and fettuccine too!

I had never made my own pasta before but always wanted to! So when I went to go blackberry picking at our favorite spot....and saw that the berries had been sprayed and mowed down, I decided to take the kiddos to the park instead! That's when I spotted a garage sale! They had a food dehydrator but another lady beat me to it! I was hoping there would be a flour mill!
They had 4 juicers but I already have 2! There was a kids sewing machine I wished I would have gotten! I might drive back out to see if its still there, even though its been a week!?



  1. That is so nifty! It looks like alot of fun!

  2. WOw! How cool is that? I was just thinking how Id like to make homemade pasta. Can I come over and we'll make a bunch and freeze it? If we lived closer I probably wouldnt invite myself and we'd be so busy mothering that it wouldnt happen, huh? Alright. I 'll just be really really happy for you :)


I read all my comments and love to know people are out there....I enjoy making new blog friends!
Thanks for taking the time to leave me a comment!
