Are You Ready To Win?

When you look at fresh homemade pasta's don't you wish you had the tools to create dishes like this at home. Don't you visit your favorite Italian foodie blogs and stare in envy and say to yourself, "I am going to make that.. as soon as I buy a pasta machine, a gnocci board or attachments to make the job easier".

I'm so exited to offer my FIRST contest allowing you the opportunity to be a part of the "pasta recipe fun" and a chance to win a $60.00 gift certificate to the CSN stores..

And for those of you who already own your pasta making tools.. please, still enter!
The contest winner will be able to use the certificate at any of the CSN stores whether it's or not.

Stay tuned.. next week I'll announce the details of the Pasta Recipe contest here on DMC. For now.. be thinking of your favorite pasta recipe!

And have a look at some of my homemade fresh pasta's here at

Basic Egg Pasta Dough Recipe
"Pasta al' Uovo"
(1 pound)
2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
3 eggs
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon lukewarm water

Place the flour on a large floured surface.
Make a well in the center. Break the eggs into the well.
Add the salt, oil, and water. Beat the mixture in the well with a fork.
Using a fork, gently start to work the flour into the liquid.
Continue until the dough becomes sticky and difficult to work with the fork.
Use your hands to form the rough dough into a ball.
Transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface.
Knead the dough until it is smooth and elastic, about 10 minutes.
Cover with a bowl or towel and let rest for 10 to 15 minutes.
Proceed with rolling and cutting the pasta according to your recipe

Buon Appetito!!
