Another new thing I learned while in Montreal last month was how awesome making fresh pasta is. My sister showed me step by step and it seemed really easy -- and then the other day I watched a Jamie Oliver video and it seemed even easier. I'm lucky living with the kitchen that I do because I have access to a food processor and a pasta maker. It literally took 20 seconds to mix the pasta and then I immediately started pressing it through on the thickest setting a few times to 'knead' it. The only thing slowing me down was that the clamp on the pasta maker didn't fit over any of my work surfaces, so I had to hold it down while turning -- I could have used a third hand.
I made tagliatelle because it seemed like the easiest and paired it with summer pesto from my freezer.
After dinner we went to go watch the Gorillaz performance, which was fantastic.
