South Louisiana-Yes, it is HOT
So I got a Marcato Atlas 180 pasta machine for my birthday and have been itching to use it. Well, dinner party Thursday night so time to use it. I knew what wine we would be drinking and it would go perfect with Lasagna. This is my great grandmother's recipe. She always just put the spinach as a layer instead of making green pasta dough (easier, but taste the same once baked).

The Spinach salads...

Opened a bottle of the Super Tuscan I made with my Uncle 11 months ago. Excellent pairing with the lasagna.

Looks tasty for sure! I'd stay away from the scale for a couple days though.

Thanks Bh!
Fantastic Keith! I've got to use my pasta maker more often. Hmm. We are having spaghetti tonight.
I had a cheap knockoff pasta machine years ago, but it wore out fast. Glad I finally have a good one. Nothing beats fresh pasta when cooking Italian IMO.

Did you boil first or build it raw ? I've done it both ways . Just wondering .
Gonna be time for Lasagna ,,,, Nice work .


My Son just bought a pasta press for his stand mixer .

I usually just build it raw with fresh pasta because it cooks in no time and I like that the pasta will soak up moisture in the lasagna. Not a fan of runny bolognese....
 
I have my Noni's old Atlas, which still works perfectly, although it's a little loose and clunky. (my brother is borrowing it right now, so I can't post a pic.)

Then last week I happen to stop by the Habitat for Humanity store in town, and scored a new Atlas for $22 minus the box. (I should've bought all eight of them to resell).
And man, they are still building them like a tank.
I will some day pass both of them down to my niece and nephew, seeing I don't have kids.

Great post, Goomba.
Dan.
