Giveaway: Your Own Home Pasta Machine!

I was recently approached to hold a giveaway by someone from CSN Stores, which operates over 200 online stores including those selling tableware and kitchenware from microwaves and eco-friendly fridges and cookware sets to Rachael Ray Cookware -- I don't watch her but someone gave my her fondue set for Christmas. Some people have told me her products are actually pretty good, and they do look cute.

They asked me to choose something for the giveaway, and here was my pick (and I hope you guys like it):

CucinaPro Imperia Home Pasta Machine S150, which has a 6" wide roller and spaghetti and fettucine cutter ~TA DA!
You know you want to eat fresh, handmade pasta for dinner at home. Forget those dried, pre-packaged stuff.

So, how to win your very own pasta machine? You just have to promise to make me some pasta once a month for the rest of your life.
Nah, I kid, I kid~ (but I won't refuse if you offer).

It's the usual deal + a teeny bit more:
Leave a comment below with your contact info and tell me what would be the first dish you'll try to cook with your new pasta machine!

Easy enough, no? You have until midnight of next Tuesday, January 26th (PST).

Good luck to all!

Linguini with clams in a light herbed marinara sauce! All homemade of couse - I'd steam the clams myself then them to a mix of olive oil, basil, oregano and tomatoes. The real treat would be the homemade pasta though, not the sauce :) I'd round out the meal with a simple greens salad, some homemade garlic bread and a glass of white wine.

You're right... I would love to make and serve fresh pasta. I have tried buying "expensive" dried pastas in hopes that there would be a big taste difference, but there wasn't. I would make pasta with fresh diced roma tomatoes, basil, garlic and of course, EVOO.

My hubby is the cook in our home, he makes the best pasta. He makes chicken alfredo and other pasta meals that are out of this world.
I am sure he would love to give it a try to make his own noodles from scratch as he takes such pride in his cooking. (rightfully so)
