In yesterday’s post, we covered the kneading of the pasta dough (and how kids will tackle anything without fear!)
Today’s final installment is about taking it home… from a tube of pasta dough to a bowl of yummy pasta, ready to eat.
By the way, please check out our course offerings tab or on Facebook if you’re interested in enrolling your kids in a pasta class!
We cut the pasta into equal, finger-width pieces, and squeezed each piece to make an ‘ear’ of pasta.
Fresh pasta is ready for the boiling water, and trust me: it doesn’t take very long when the pasta isn’t dried!
All of the kids experimented with new shapes-
braids, stars, an iPad…
I loved the imagination and creativity.
Once the pasta was done boiling,
we added butter and parmesan
(or didn’t for those that like their pasta plain)
and ate it!
Last but not least: It’s the first official Catalyst Cooks YouTube Video! Check it out below!
