Homemade Pasta With Roasted Garlic

My family has been eating pasta every Saturday for years. Sometimes (most times) my dad and I felt it was necessary to make pasta by hand!  Which was the beginning of another family food tradition. When I moved away from home for school, I was left with no pasta maker and would dream about making fresh homemade spaghetti. Until one day my parents visited me with a small present… A PASTA MAKER!! They found it at a yard sale for $15. This dish is super simple, the only tough thing is, you will need a pasta maker.

It serves 4 people and only costs $0.33/person. Now why is this amount so important?

Well let me answer! Have you heard of Live Below the Line? It is a challenge to eat for no more than $1.75 a day. I was contacted by the lovely Erica who encouraged me to post a recipe for the cause. I got so excited that I developed 3 recipes for everyone that is taking part in the Live below the Line challenge! This is the first one, I will be releasing them over the next couple of days. I really hope to provide some ideas and inspiration to everyone participating in this awesome initiative!

I really believe that I am the most lucky when it comes to my family, friends, and living situation. Whenever I can give back, I really hope to do so! By eating for $1.75 a day it forces you to cost out all your ingredients even the small flavour enhancers like salt! Which is less than a cent for a gram, but can add up fast when there is only $1.75 to be spent.

I like this idea so much that I have created my own challenge… I am challenging myself to eating for $1.75 once a month all the time. I think this slight change in my lifestyle will encourage me to keep thinking less about me and more about others. But this is my personal challenge, do you ever challenge yourself to lifestyle changes?

I definitely want to give a pat on the back to Live Below the Line and encourage everyone to check it out and maybe even follow them on twitter @LBLCA

As always, thanks for taking a moment out of your day to pop by!

Much Love,
