  • When the coronavirus canceled my plans to travel to Italy this summer, I decided to make homemade pasta to bring a bit of Italian culture into my home. 
  • I was surprised to learn pasta is mainly made of only flour and eggs, so the recipe was shockingly easy to follow.
  • A pasta maker made it much easier to roll out the dough and to cut the perfect noodle, and a clothing rack worked as a makeshift pasta dryer.
  • The finished dish was delicious — one of the best meals I’ve had during the lockdown.

Back in February, I planned a trip to Italy for this upcoming July. I was excited to visit Rome for the first time, to see Vatican City, and to take a road trip down to the Amalfi Coast. Like most people, my plans were canceled when the coronavirus pandemic swept across the globe. 

As I entered the second month of social distancing in my Brooklyn apartment, I started thinking of ways to experience the Italian culture without leaving my home. I decided the best way to do that was to make the country’s national dish — pasta. But I didn’t want to make any old pasta from the box. Instead, I wanted to create it from scratch.

Following the recipe from Gimme Some Oven, I made homemade pasta, and this is how it went.
