Last week, I got a text from one of my neighbors. It seems she and her daughter took a cooking class and made homemade pasta. They wanted to recreate the pasta for the rest of the family, but didn’t have a pasta roller – would I possibly have one and if so, could they borrow it? Absolutely, I have a pasta attachment for my kitchen aid mixer, I lent them both the mixer and the attachment.
Imagine my surprise last Sunday morning when they returned the equipment and presented me with a container of homemade pasta in alfredo sauce. I was thrilled! The hubby was leaving for a business trip that afternoon which meant I was going to be alone for dinner. I got to enjoy a lazy Sunday afternoon on the couch, reading a book, AND I didn’t have to worry about fixing myself dinner.
When I got hungry, I transferred the pasta and sauce into a pan and added a splash of heavy cream. I turned the pan on low and gently heated up my dinner. It was really delicious. I will take this kind of thank you any day of the week!
