Have you ever tried making your own pasta? My grandfather was famous for making the best, the thinnest pasta in our family. He was doing everything by hand. His pasta was always so perfect! When I was a child, I used to help him, but my noodles has never been that beautiful. Few days ago, I decided to try once again. And since Spring is coming, I decided it was time to make a green, spinach pasta! Believe me, homemade pasta tastes 100 times better than store-bought one!
