These handmade noodles take pasta dishes to the next level with elegantly embossed designs. These tutorial cleverly combines crafts and cooking to create stylish edible artwork featured on round pasta medallions.

Food blog Food 52 shares this simple tutorial on how to create embossed pasta at home. Though embossed pasta is beautiful to look at for aesthetic reasons, the pasta actually holds sauce better because of the flat rounded surface of the medallion that has grooves for the pasta to really sink into. The pasta is made using a homemade dough of eggs, flour, white wine, water and spices that is then rolled and punched into embossed circles using pasta stamps. The stamps can be purchased to include a variety of designs from swirl patterns to crests.
