Multigrain homemade pasta

There was a day when I was forced to strike a balance between "tasty food" and "strictly no white flour (maida) recipe" wish that my roommate was drooling over. Then was when I started "all home-made ingredients (most of it, though)" mission. End of the day, there was this "yummy yummy in my tummy" look on my roommate's face. So, are you ready to sing the "Yummy...Tummy" anthem?!
