Recipe For Two Tone Pasta

When in Italy it is common to order pasta as the first course of your meal. Dave and I tend to have this prima piatti as our main course for lunch. For my two tone pasta I first made rigatoni which are ridged pasta. I then made long flat sheets of pasta which I turned into ravioli. These pasta asciutta are cooked and served with a sauce that works for the shape of the pasta you have made.

Head straight on to the recipe for Two Tone Pasta ♥

If you ask anyone who knows me well, they will tell you that I do not have any logic. For this months’ daring kitchen challenge I decided to get my pasta extruder out of the box and use it to make a pretty, two tone pasta. I did not realize that as soon as the two colours went into the extruder they would mix together to create a really pretty pink! It was only after I had made the second batch that Dave suggested that the way I went about extruding my pasta could have resulted in two tone spaghetti. You see, for the rigatoni I just put the red pasta and the white pasta in together.

Dave, who is an engineer, told me that I had I put in a piece of red, followed by a piece of white, and extruded spaghetti instead of a small pasta, I could have achieved a lovely striped affect. I made striped long pasta sheets and I used them to make ravioli. If you wanted to, you could follow this recipe and make your own farfalle.

  5. Oooooo how pretty and I’m sure it tastes amazing since it’s homemade. Sadly I think I won’t be able to make this one as I don’t have a pasta maker, but I’ll keep it in mind for the day I splurge on one! 🙂
