I kept my word about making the million layer lasagne once the kitchen was functional. Four hours later, I finally finished. I’m tired. I probably won’t try this recipe again but I will definitely make my own homemade pasta again. This lasagne recipe requires squares of sheet pasta that are virtually see-through. That requires cranking your pasta through the finest setting, the most treacherous setting. It was cool to make pasta from scratch. I think I’ll try and make a batch once a month.
I think everyone should try and make their own pasta at least once in their life. It’s a lot of fun taking eggs and flour, smashing them into a gooey mess and turning it into a ball of pasta with your own hands. And the pasta machine — it pretty much does all the work. Nothing compares to homemade pasta.
P.S. Here’s a view of the inside of the million layer lasagne. Those thin thin lasagne sheets are amazing!
