Spaghetti Night!

Wednesday night was spaghetti night at our house! And not just regular spaghetti night....HOMEMADE SPAGHETTI NIGHT! If you have never had hand made pasta, you should march yourself over to your nearest Williams Sonoma and get a pasta machine ASAP! 

We were fortunate enough to get one for our wedding and this was the first night to put it to use! It was SO much fun and ridiculously delicious! Seriously! 

We had to take our rings off for this messy task!
We started out by making a fresh Marinara Sauce with some fresh ingredients:

 Tomato Squashing....really fun!


Then we started on the dough...

First We hand rolled it out! 
Then we fed the dough through the first part of the machine that flattens it out as thin as you want.  

Next we fed the flattened piece through the pasta cutter, and ended up with a ton of spaghetti strings! 

Before it was cooked

After! I told you...a ton!

I grated some fresh Parmesan! 

 Put a salad together!

Poured some wine 
 And we sat down to the most delicious meal I have ever had! It was so good! I can't wait to do it again!
