Yes, I make "spetslea" which is spellt incorrect but is a recipe handed down to me by my mother and is little pasta where you add Jarlsberg cheese in the middle, and top with caramelised onions.
It is SO, SO delicious.
I would not make the Italian type spaghetti myself as too much work when there are a lot of different types around.
Is your son in law German? You can now buy the machines here. you could not eat it all, depending on how much you make! with my recipe it is just NOT possible to eat that much and my friend who comes down from the country for it, and I just drool as we make it!
I do not bother to make my own these days as I have trouble doing so many things which I'd love to do. However.... When I was I little girl, my mother would make HER own pasta and I would watch,utterly fascinated!!!! To this day,I still adore home made ravioli the best of all!!!
