Every man should have at least one amazing meal he can cook (and probably more like 3-5), and while it actually is possible to screw up spaghetti or pasta, I think it's the best one to master. A good pasta can be paired with a nice salad to begin, a good bread on the side, and great wine to round it out. But if it's going to be a signature starting dish, why not go the extra mile and do it all from scratch?
And that starts at the pasta noodles, which are so simple to make I'm honestly amazed I'd never done this before. All you need is flour, eggs, a little olive oil and a pinch of salt and you'll be golden. Check out the recipe at ArtOfManliness.com.
