Frequently Asked Questions about our Tasty Pasta Recipes

Is it worth making your own pasta?

The short answer is yes. It might seem like you’re just adding more time to an otherwise quick and easy meal, but realistically, its easy and even quicker to cook. See more of our homemade pasta recipes here.

Learning the technique may take a few tried but once you get the hang of it, this is a quick alternative to using pre-made pasta, and the delicious fresh flavour can’t be disputed.

The pasta will need to cook for roughly 2-3 minutes, which is half the time shop bought pasta takes. The easiest way to tell it’s done is to keep an eye out and once it floats to the top it should be perfect.  

Simple and easy ways to elevate your pasta dish

here are many ways you can improve and elevate your pasta dishes.

Try cooking your pasta in olive oil with a pinch of salt, this will infuse into the pasta and produce a light flavouring to compliment your sauce and other components. This will also help separate the starch and prevent the pasta from getting sticky and soft.

You can also use garlic, a variation of meat (not just minced beef), hot pepper flakes, red wine, herbs, cheese, cream, or butter to help improve the flavour of your sauces. Depending on the style of your dish you may want to consider experimenting with new herbs, flavours and ingredients to change your dish for the better.
