Cold weather activity

A few weeks ago, we were home bound due to some seriously blustery conditions – winds, sub-zero temps, and a mix of sleet and flurries.

Soooooo….what to do?

MAKE PASTA!

As a holiday gift to ourselves, we ordered a Marcato Atlas 150 pasta maker…that arrived just in time.

The pasta machine is awesome. Easy. Has two cutter options. Overall, it made for a fun winter day.
