Pasta and harvesting

Making pasta is one of the most simplest and rewarding things that can be made from scratch and more importantly its fun for children who love tho join in and get the hands dirty.
The recipe is 2 cups of flour and 2 eggs but I normally do 3 cups of flour and 3 eggs and this will be plenty for 2 meals.
Make a well in the flours and crack eggs into well  add a small amount of warm water then mix eggs and slowly mix with the flour if needed add a small amount of more water mix until combined then knead until soft, around 10-15 min.
Glad wrap and leave for 30 min to rest .
Then u can roll out how every u please.
I use a pasta maker and I find this is easier then rolling by hand.

Today's harvest of beets and carrots, this was cut up into small pieces and roasted until soft and will be used tossed through a salad with some feta.
