Random Yum

We made noodles last weekend. I've had this pasta machine and drying rack for years and thought it would be fun to put them to use for a change. The noodles were delicious with some chicken soup, although I think I'd like them a bit thicker next time. Normally, when we make noodles (and when my mother-in-law made noodles) they're a bit on the thick side because of hand rolling and cutting. The basic recipe is 2 eggs per 1 cup of flour. Knead well. Let it rest before rolling and cutting. Very easy.

This was a delicious salad I got while shopping at my favorite Italian market near Youngstown. Rulli Brothers is known for everything Italian, and great prices to boot! Although the ingredients list broccoli, I'm guessing it was broccoli rabe because of the unidentifiable leaves involved. Very good salad with tortellini, shells, cheese, broccoli rabe, zucchini, yellow squash, roasted red pepper, fresh red pepper, tomatoes, and dressing.
