Homemade Linguini

It’s still August, and since we’re having a short stretch of really warm days, I decided that some light pasta would be the thing to eat today. Yesterday I whipped up the pasta dough, wrapped it in plastic wrap and set it in the refrigerator. This morning, I let the dough warm on the counter while I ate breakfast, then pulled out Ye Olde Pasta Machine and made pasta! Here’s a photo of it drying on Ye Olde Pasta Rack:

Later today, after the linguini is dry, we’ll cook and eat! Not that regular linguini is very heavy, but we always found that fresh pasta is lighter still, and doesn’t sit so heavy in the stomach. 🙂
