Make Fresh Homemade Pasta in 15 Min With Philips Pasta Maker
As a true Italian, I love making pasta at home, but since becoming a mum, it has been something I really didn’t have time for. So I was pretty excited to see Philips Pasta Maker in action at the IFA 2018.
Philips kindly sent me over a pasta maker to have the chance to test it myself, and I was totally amazed!
The Philips Pasta Maker is incredibly easy and straightforward to use, making it the perfect kitchen gadget for novice and busy cooks alike.
Featuring automatic mixing, kneading and extruding, there’s no much left for you to do.
Choose the flour you like, choose your favourite program ( with or without eggs) and add the ingredients. The pasta maker includes a super handy auto-weighing function, which weighs the flour and indicates the according amount of liquid you need to add.
The pasta maker combines all the ingredients in less than 5 minutes, and kneads flawlessly whilst you get your pasta sauce ready.
When the pasta is ready, all you have to do is cut it at your preferred length- Et-voila’, your pasta is ready. I mean, homemade pasta doesn’t get easier than this!
There are tons of creative pasta recipes to try within the included recipe book. I just made my first batch of whole wheat fresh pasta, and even added some beetroot powder in a second one.
Both batches came out beautifully, with an impeccable texture, and stored wonderfully in the fridge (sprinkle a little flour on each tagliatelle nest and store in an airtight container for up to 2 days).
If you are a pasta lover like me, I’m sure you’ll fall in love with this powerful pasta maker – There’s nothing better fresh homemade pasta ready in just 15 minutes!
