Homemade Fresh pasta

Make this really simple, quick and delicious meal - it's great if you can make your own pasta. If not then use about 200g of ready-made fresh pasta. All supermarkets now stock fresh pasta, usually in the chiller.

I've made a fun little Youtube video to go with this recipe - enjoy!
