Making your own pasta has many advantages – you can control the exact ingredients, such as the quality of the flour, the number of eggs and whether they’re free-range, the quality of the oil, etc. It’s a lot of fun to make pasta as a couple or with family and friends. Best of all, homemade pasta tastes terrific!
