Whole wheat Spaghetti Noodles

The food for this week's recipe post is created by my friend Brenda, a fellow foodie. 
Brenda had us over for dinner one evening where we made our own whole wheat pasta. It was a lot of fun. She followed the recipe as posted by 'the pioneer woman' but to make it healthy she chose to use whole wheat flour.  

1 cup flour with 2 eggs

The kneaded dough

Rolled flat and cut into thin strips with pizza cutter

It was therapeutic and social to cut your own noodles ;-)

That's Brenda and I displaying our tools, with a glass of merlot...

Boil it in hot water for 2 minutes

That's the Bolognese Sauce that Brenda had made earlier

Ready to serve

The dish was a huge success and everybody loved it including kids who don't touch store bought whole wheat pasta with a barge pole. There is something about homemade and fresh that even 'healthy' things start tasting wonderful.
It can be a fun activity for doing with kids and it is sure to spark their interest in eating the dish...

  1. Fun! I tend to like whole wheat pasta a lot more now than white.
    Especially spaghetti.
