Ciao! It's been quite some time since I last updated Knead Pasta Project, but rest assured, there has still been A LOT of pasta-making happening at Casa Leaird. In addition to my own two hands, I have two more (tiny) hands digging into dough and making all sorts of pasta deliziosa. Here is a picture of my daughter, Hazel, making orecchiette last night.
Orecchiette-making Step 1: Roll dough into ropes.
Orecchiette-making Step 2: Cut ropes into pillows.
Orecchiette-making Step 3: Scrape pillows to flatten, then form over thumb.
