Homemade Fettucine with Alfredo Sauce

For Macaroni Monday this week, I made fresh soaked whole wheat fettucine. I used this recipe as my blueprint.  I mixed together the whole wheat flour, water, whey, and salt the night before . 
I kneaded it up, coated it with olive oil, and let it sit overnight.
 In the morning, I rolled it out thinly in batches.
I then rolled the dough up loosely to slice.
I sliced up the dough log into fettucine-width slices.
Each piece of dough was then unrolled and hung to dry.  Yes, in case you were wondering, that is my clothes drying rack... and yes, I washed it before and after.

When it was time for dinner, I served it with our home made alfredo sauce and parsley.

    1. Thanks! Ya know, we used to have a hand crank pasta maker, but we never used it. Maybe because it didn't roll sheets? It only made elbow, ziti, and things like that. We sold it a few months ago, right before I got back into making it by hand. I am thinking of getting the pasta roller attachment for the kitchenaid mixer. Hopefully I will get more use out of that!

    2. Jackie, Brad got me a few pasta attachments for my kitchen aid for Christmas this past year. I love them! I got the ravioli maker, the sheet roller, and spaghetti/fettuccine maker. The ravioli maker can be a bit tricky but other than that, pretty easy!

    3. Zoe, would you say it would be worth putting on my wish list? I hate getting kitchen gadgets that I don't end up using semi-regularly. How do they clean?

  3. Of the ones I have, I'd probably ditch the ravioli maker. The other two are worth it in my opinion!

    The sheet roller and fettuccini maker don't get cleaned. You just brush off the excess flour. They will rust if you clean them with water.
