Experience the magic of fresh pasta with these recipes

Fresh pasta is perfect for stuffing to make ravioli or to simply enjoy with a homemade sauce. 

When you think of fresh pasta you may be thinking that it isn't worth the hassle. This is where you are wrong. Fresh pasta is not as difficult to make as you may think and once you've made it the first time there is no going back.

The trick to the richest pasta dough you can muster is separating the eggs and only using the yolk. You can easily pop the whites into a freezer bag and keep them for meringues on another day, or, if you don’t want to make the meringues or waste the remaining egg, simply use half the amount of the eggs and use the whole thing.

The way we enjoy fresh pasta most is when it is filled. Ravioli or tortellini are fun to make, especially if you involve friends, family and a glass of wine. So get into the kitchen this weekend and try some of these pasta recipes.
