Unplanned Practical Life

I was busy making a lasagna for dinner when DD2 decided that the pasta machine was hers and she wanted to take over (just a quick note - I am not a pasta maker by choice DH has a wheat intolerance so I have to make our pasta using spelt flour instead of wheat - I would much rather use lasagna sheets from a packet, mmm, but then I would have missed all this fun)

The pasta has to be fed through the machine 7-10 times before its ready for use.
Here she is carefully feeding it in , minding her fingers and turning the handle.

after a while DD6 decided it also looked like fun and had a go.

For any who want to know -  the recipe for pasta is simply 3oz plain flour (spelt in our case) to 1 medium egg (for best results the egg should be at room temperature not straight from the fridge) blend together and feed through the pasta machine (taking care to fold after each feed and flour the outside if it gets sticky)

I have a son that is Gluten Intolerant. I do not think I would want to go to the trouble of making noodles, but I am not much of a cook. i does look like fun, though. Good Job! I am coming in from the NOBH.
