Fresh Pasta...Easy as 1,2,3

My students need a pasta attachment for the kitchen aid mixer in my classroom. I would like to have two sets, this way all of my students would get a chance to experience making fresh pasta.

My Students

I teach Nutrition & Wellness and Culinary Arts. My students are excited about learning how to create different foods and learning how food can enhance their lifestyles. They love trying 'new' foods at least new to them.

Fresh pasta does not have to be a foreign food.

Many of my students do not know that pasta can be made at home and can be adjusted to help with a food allergy. My students love the hands on food labs and experimenting with new ideas. Seeing kids get excited about learning is so much fun to see. I am teaching kids a life long skill they can take with them after graduation.

My Project

These pasta attachments will help expand my students education on food. Most of my students have never tasted fresh pasta and with these new attachments they will be able to create new foods they have never done before.

Fresh pasta can be made with different vegetables or different grains so we will be able to experiment with our pasta and students who have gluten allergies will be able to eat pasta.

Students learn when doing hands on lessons. This is a great way to teach students that healthy eating is easy and better tasting. Creating food is a lifelong skill.
