I LOVE homemade pasta and of course with the help of Thermomix, nothing could be easier.
I dashed home from work, whipped up a batch of dough, let it rest whilst I searched for the arm to my pasta roller, and after working up a sweat as I scoured cupboards and drawers with no luck, gave up on the home made and quickly cooked some fettuccine I had in the pantry, still did an outstanding sauce and yes, we were eating in no time.
However, I highly recommend the making and rolling of your own pasta to elevate this dish just a little more. It is so simple, and when using the best ingredients, (like homemade pasta) you will understand why pasta (and all of its options) is one of the most consumed dishes in the world.
