My Opinion of the Lab:

The overall lab was awesome,  and it was my first time using a pasta machine. We made the noodles thinner than the recipe and they were perfect. The tomato sauce and parmesan cheese went well together. It made me want to own a pasta machine at home.

At home, I would use this recipe for lunch for my family and myself.

When would you eat it?

I would eat it for lunch.

Who would you serve it to?

I would serve it to my family, friends and myself.

How could you alter the recipe to make it healthier?

I could use half whole wheat flour and half all-purpose flour, and not sprinkle parmesan cheese at the end.

I could roll out the pasta by hand and cut it with a knife instead of buying a pasta machine.
