I’ve always wanted to try my hand at making cheese, especially mozzarella. Over the years I’ve watched lots of videos, how-tos and DIYs for cheese making, and even though my interest was piqued, I never actually took the plunge. That is, until Grow and Make reached out to us and asked if we would like to test drive one of their DIY kits.
Pasta Bianco With Spinach & Sun Dried Tomatoes
Grow and Make’s goal is to teach you the core skills to do-it-yourself, and then be able to take those skills and run with them. Want to learn how to make soap, lotions or body scrubs? Grow and Make’s got you. Want to make candles or grow an herb garden? You can. But for us here at AHWD, we finally got to try our hand at making Italian cheeses, and put together this super yummy pasta recipe to show off our skills.
Fresh Ricotta. Not too shabby for a first time cheesemaker, eh?
Fresh mozzarella. It wasn't pretty to look at, but it sure did taste good.
With prices ranging from $17.95 to $79.95, there’s a Grow and Make kit for everyone and at every skill level, and we think that a kit from Grow and Make would be a wonderful gift to give and receive! Want to try your hand at a DIY kit? Grow and Make is offering our readers $5.00 off a DIY kit with discount code TRYDIY!
Even though our mozzarella and ricotta cheeses turned out looking more rustico than decorato, they worked absolutely perfect in this Pasta Bianco recipe--the ricotta was creamy, and the melted mozzarella had a nice pull to it. Buon appetito!
