Fresh pasta is more tender and quicker to cook than the store-bought dried variety. Of course, in select markets, you have the possibility of buying fresh pasta, but it’s not as good as if you’d make it yourself. So how to make fresh homemade pasta? Read on and find out.
“Fresh” isn’t always better, but it can mean simply “different”. It’s the same for fresh pasta and dried pasta. They’re different experiences and relatively different food items. For instance, fresh pasta is the star of its dish, it has a more delicate texture, and it works better with light sauces, made with tomatoes, cream, oil, herbs, or butter.
So if you’re in the mood for a light pasta dish, learn how to make fresh homemade pasta. Does it seem like a hassle? It really is not, because what time you think you lose in making the fresh pasta, you gain in cooking the pasta. That’s because fresh pasta takes half the time to cook than dried pasta would.
