First job was to prepare all the
ingredients needed for the recipes -
we grated cheese, chopped up ham,
prepared basil etc..
|Flour & eggs ready to make pasta|
|Pesto ingredients ready to be blitzed!|
|The pesto being made.|
|Here we blitzed some ham to make a filling for the gnocchi!|
|A little coffee break...|
|with delicious home made biscuits.|
|The gnocchi being shaped.|
|The gnocchi being left to dry a little before cooking.|
|I made spinach pasta|
|We rolled it up ready to cut into tagliatelle|
The pasta strips are hung out to dry so
they do not stick when cooking.
Everything we made - the pasta and
gnocchi ready to cook and
the macaroni cheese.
The ice cream is churning in the
background with strawberries
ready to accompany it!
|The ice cream churning and a nice prosecco aperitif while we wait:-)|
|The prosecco & red wine for our meal.|
|Lunch is served!|
My lunch - it was all delicious!
The pesto was mixed into the
tagliatelle, and we made a sauce
for the gnocchi, plus the macaroni
And the fabulous home made
ice cream with strawberries
yummy - plus a shot of home
