Homemade Pasta with Alexian Mousse

There’s nothing more romantic than a homemade Italian pasta dinner, and there’s nothing more delicious than when that pasta is stuffed. Even if the idea of making fresh pasta seems daunting to you, it’s not difficult to – however, you might want to try a practice batch or two if you’re planning to serve it for a special occasion.

How to Make Homemade Pasta

The Kitchn has a comprehensive guide to making pasta for beginners.

Here are a few tips from the Alexian kitchen:

1. Don’t rush. Though it’s not difficult, don’t try to rush through. Make every piece with love, and you’ll taste it later.
2. Follow the directions. Don’t try any modifications your first time around – use a trusted recipe and follow it to a T.
3. Don’t overstuff. You will end up with waterlogged pasta and wasted fillings.
4. Use plenty of flour. You don’t want your pasta sticking together.
5. Keep your pasta covered. It dries out very quickly.
