These are what my grandmother made. I love them. You can add chicken or beef and whatever vegetables you want.

Fresh Semolina and Egg Pasta

Rating: 4.57 stars
Just like Mama used to make! Nothing beats fresh pasta, and this simple semolina and egg recipe is the best thing ever. You can use this recipe to make any style of pasta you like, from fettucine to ravioli to lasagna. Semolina is a special variety of wheat flour available at health food stores and gourmet grocery stores.

Whole Wheat Pasta

Rating: 4.2 stars
Fresh, healthy and very delish... I sometimes make this the traditional style, and when in a hurry, I throw all the ingredients into my mixer, with the kneading hook.

Unique Spinach Noodles

Rating: 4.54 stars
These green spinach noodles have a very interesting texture and flavor--but they taste better than store-bought noodles because they're fresh. Use in soups, or serve alone; they are great either way. This is an easy recipe, and you'll get lots of compliments because you made them yourself.

Gnocchi I

This simple potato, flour, and egg recipe is one my family has used for generations.

Homemade Four Cheese Ravioli

Rating: 4.27 stars
Great homemade Italian ravioli recipe that I have recreated to taste like the ravioli at Maggiano's restaurant. Don't be intimidated by the large list of ingredients, it is well worth it!

Basic Pasta

Rating: 4.54 stars
An easy recipe and simple to double or triple, depending on amount needed. Hope you enjoy!

Egg Noodles

Rating: 4.69 stars
This is your basic old fashioned recipe for egg noodles, just like grammy used to make! Try making them next time you prepare your favorite soup or stew. Don't forget that fresh pasta cooks much quicker than dried! You may use a dough hook attachment on your electric mixer or your hands to make the pasta dough.

Homemade Lasagna Sheets

Homemade lasagna sheets are easier to make than you think and you don't even need a pasta machine! And forget about blanching the sheets before baking - no precooking is required!

Easy Homemade Pasta Dough

Rating: 4.89 stars
Consistently great and easy pasta dough. This makes really great homemade linguine or ravioli for a manual pasta machine. If its too sticky, just roll a bit in flour. This recipe makes enough pasta for 24 small raviolis or 4 servings of linguine. Whatever pasta you make should take no more than 4 to 6 minutes to boil.

Grandma's Noodles II

Rating: 4.8 stars
Homemade soup noodles.

Ricotta Gnocchi

Rating: 4.53 stars
This recipe was passed down to me from my great aunt, it is easy, authentic and delicious! The secret to making these gnocchi is to dry the ingredients as much as you can before using. Let the ricotta drain of excess water by placing it in a strainer over a bowl and leaving it in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes before using.
