I wanted to try handmade pasta. I've never done it before. Jonas had been sick all week, and so I planned to make his favorite, fettuccine alfredo. I've been curious about homemade pasta for awhile, so I thought I would give it a go.
Um, not so much.
I made them the same size as the dried noodles in the box. Just a guess. Who knew they would quadruple in thickness when cooked???
They really looked, and tasted, like dumplings.
Gross dumplings, not good ones.
I also could have titled this post "The Night We Ate Dinner Twice."
We ended up at KFC. I am not kidding.
The other fail this week was the first time ever that Pioneer Woman has let me down. Baked Lemon Pasta was barely edible. The sauce was clumpy (in a curdled sort of way) and bland. I had made the quick unbaked version she mentions at the beginning of the post before, and it was good. That version is a keeper. The baked one with sour cream....not a winner. How can pasta and sour cream and butter and lemon go so wrong???
You can thank me for not photographing it.
Pasta in a cream sauce, gone wrong twice in one week? That's gotta be some kind of a record.
