Way to go Joe! Like Katie said - once you starting playing with your noodles it can get very addictive ... expecially if you have a pasta machine (roller). Imagine making your own ravioli with green and white striped pasta for spinach and cheese, or pink and white striped for a shrimp and/or crab stuffing.

Here is my first pasta dryer:



Not as elegant as what Buck made Katie - but I could dry clothes on it, too.

You may have just saved me from a project (Not that there's ever a shortage of them around here). I think we have one of those clothes racks somewhere in the house from when our daughters lived at home and bought fancy schmancy clothes that could not go in the dryer. I'll check with DW when she gets up.

I use a clothes rack when I did make my own, I started out with a new one then found i needed more rods. I purchased some more dowel rods and drill holes between the others, slid in the new rods . Works great.

Is the bread in the picture homemade ? that looks great also. Good job on the noodles. I might just have to try them now.

Yes, that's Challah Bread, and it is delicious. I made a sandwich for lunch yesterday with it using Genoa Salami and Munster cheese, and it was to die for. The bread just melts in your mouth.

I enjoy making all kinds of flavored pasta, might drag the machine out over the weekend , if I have enough energy to do anything.

I used that years ago, when I started pasta making. Who knows where it is now . Hubby made me a drying rack , smaller than the one pictured, more like Buck made for Katie.
