Can't believe how simple it was to make the pasta and how wonderful it tasted. I knew that buying the IP was a good choice.. when so many desis rave about something, it has to be good. : ) Thanks for the recipe, peartree. LIke I said, it was the first time I made pasta from scratch. Got two comments from DH. One was 'you made it?' and other was 'Nice'. LOL. : ) No wonder I said yes without a proposal. Kids liked it too! The recipe is indeed fool-proof or newbie proof!
