We learned how to make pasta last night from scratch!  It was a little messy, pretty simple, and lots of fun.  Now, the second picture presents pasta that I did not make – the woman who was teaching us showed us how to make all kinds of pasta, hence the great variation there.  I, on the other hand, created those magnificent beings in the third and fourth pictures – beautiful, imperfect, and yummy looking (as are the ones she made).  Unfortunately, we were unable to eat the pasta due to health regulations, but I smartly wrote down the instructions so now, when I go back home, I can make it again.  (taken 9.24.2014)
