Everyone loves pasta! It is the ultimate comfort food. Fresh pasta is next level delicious but can feel like an undertaking to make from scratch if you’ve never attempted it before.
Join us as we learn to make pasta at home and earn the Pasta Making Badge. The Pasta Making Badge taught us (and can teach you) the history of pasta, why there are so many shapes – and some of their names – and how to make pasta at home with either a pasta making machine, inexpensive ravioli stamps, or just a knife to cut the dough.
In our next couple of posts we share interesting facts about pasta, talk about our experience taking a pasta making class in Chicago, and show you how we make pasta from scratch at home. Head over to our Instagram or Facebook to read some interesting pasta facts and be sure to follow our blog posts for more in depth reporting on our experience earning the pasta badge.

Once you’ve completed the Pasta Making Badge, be sure to tell us about it on Instagram with the hashtag #badgesforall and send us a quick message to share your experience. If you include your address, we’ll send you a little something for completing the badge!
