PASTA PASTA PASTA

Yay we made pasta from scratch yesterday. Both ravioli and tagliatelle! Dante and our neighbour Amos went on a quest for durum semolina and came back with the local version (sorry I do not remember what it is called will come back to edit later).

The whole afternoon was spent in this happy gourmet craft and of course we capped it off with a big dinner with home made tomato sauce, aglio et olio, and Auroville parmiggiano.  

It was delicious - but the pasta ended up a little unsupple - so we will likely do it again!!

The children got to help with filling the ravioli - spinach, onion and feta mix prepared by Tamar. Marilena is a visitor from Greece, and was helping Lili.
