As I mentioned yesterday, I now have a pasta machine. Yay!
To make “proper” pasta you’re supposed to use OO flour, but from what I can gather it’s not readily available in most Irish supermarkets. If anyone knows of suppliers please let me know!
In the interim I’ll probably use “strong flour” or another variant which I can get in an Irish supermarket such as SuperQuinn, Dunnes Stores or Tesco.
But the real question for me is in relation to making the pasta itself.
I love cooking, but I get rather frustrated with recipes, as so many of them assume you’re preparing food for a minimum of four people.
The number of recipes for anything that have been scaled down to one person portions is slim and when you get into something like making your own pasta I haven’t had any success at all.
So if you know of any recipes either online or in physical recipe books that can help please please let me know!
