    I've wanted chickens for a long time and finally got them, but I never thought that so many things could be made with those fresh eggs... My wife experiments a bit with food and took an interest in making pasta so she went on Ebay and bought a pasta machine started to make egg noodles and tried her hand at spaghetti, I said that sounds like a good idea and the pasta was great. On her first try it turned out pretty good so I asked her what kind of ingredients were in pasta, she said, flour, water, olive oil if you like and eggs, that's it. I didn't know she did some research and discovered the main ingredients in pasta was eggs and water. Needless to say, we will never have to buy spaghetti and egg noodles again!! Tonight I remembered when I was a child that when my mother made spaghetti I used to try to find the longest strand, tonight at age 50 I finally found the longest ever, about 24 inches, I felt like a kid again![​IMG] And to think that our pasta is 100% natural, comes from our own chickens and is so much fun and gives me fond memories! I love chickens!!!!!! [​IMG]:celebrate

    I made pasta for the first time last year using a friend's machine.
    I never thought it would be so easy & fun.

    Try experimenting with shapes - we made spaghetti. fettucine, tagliatelle & even ravioli.

    We also used some butternut squash in a couple batches - one as filling and another to flavor the pasta dough - and chopped fresh herbs in another.

    I think Santa needs to bring me my own machine this year [​IMG]

    To formulate Spaghetti Supper:
    Chef celery and onion in cutting until warm.
    Add frankfurters; chef until evenly browned.
    mix in soup, water, and Worcestershire.
    chef about 15 minutes to mix together flavors; mix often.
