Sick of the endless battle to get your family (and it’s not always just the junior members) to eat vegetables? Or possibly you would like to include them in your own diet but really don’t like carrots, for example, or green leafies? Be sneaky, then—hide the garden critters in homemade, healthy, all-natural pasta. Not only will you be successful at this inclusion, you’ll also enjoy noodles that are chemical-free, tasty, and outrageously delicious. Oh, and another bonus: do-it-yourself pasta is cheaper than even the dry stuff at the discount stores.
You’ll also get some good exercise cranking the pasta machine’s handle. It is labor intensive but what a great hobby! Soon you may even be asked for samples from those outside your family. A gift of fresh pasta, especially the kinds with extra touches such as herbs and natural food colors, will be appreciated by many.
