You'll Never Buy Dried Pasta Again After Learning This Hack

How to Make Pasta From Scratch

Fresh pasta is better than dried — no questions asked. Being the hardcore pasta enthusiast that I am, I've always loved and appreciated homemade pasta . . . but I just can't bring myself to invest in a pricey pasta maker. Up until recently, I thought that was the only way to make pasta from scratch, but it turns out that's not the case. After taking a trip to the motherland (Italy, of course), I learned a few tricks of the trade from the experts behind fresh-pasta brand Buitoni. This method totally transformed how I view fresh pasta, and now I know exactly how to make it at home, no equipment required.

Here's what I learned while wearing an apron and dirtying my hands in a cooking class taught by cookbook author Sarah Fioroni at Fattoria Poggio Alloro in Tuscany. It doesn't get any more authentic than that!
