Today I bring to you a little experiment I did with the Pasta Maker my brothers Andrew and Stephen got me for Christmas (thank you brothers)! A long time ago I saw this post Noodles with Doodles from Cafe Liz and knew it would be the first thing I did if I ever got a pasta maker. My noodles here would probably more appropriately be called stripey camo noodles, but it’s the same idea. Let me show you how I did it.
Make two batches of pasta, one regular (I did my 1-2-3 fresh pasta), and one beet version. Roll them out as usual, then cut one of them into noodles and lay them all on top of the other kind, like this:
Start rolling the pasta sheet and noodles out together, until eventually they become one pasta sheet, like this:
You can then cut that into noodles and cook them however you like. However, the reason I’m posting this as an un-wordless-wednesday is because I found the color cooked out a bit when I boiled them. This might work better with something like squid ink pasta or green pasta, but have fun experimenting!
