COVID-19 has caused some people to start “panic buying.” You can spot a panic buyer extremely easily – they’re the ones stockpiling toilet paper, bread, and other items, leaving a shortage of supplies for responsible shoppers. Because of panic buying, my regular grocery store has been out of certain items for about four weeks. My family eats a fair amount of pasta, and the pasta aisles are shockingly bare.

Thankfully, pasta is one of the easiest (and most simple) foods to make yourself. You might think that you can only make homemade pasta if you own one of those fancy pasta-making machines, but that couldn’t be farther from the truth! Celebrity chef Jamie Oliver demonstrates how to make delicious, fresh, and homemade pasta with just two ingredients.

Yep, you read that right! Two ingredients are all you need to make restaurant-quality pasta. Do you have flour and water? If so, you can easily make pasta! All you need to do is roll out the dough (you can do this with a wine bottle if you don’t have a rolling pin), cut the dough into thin strips, and toss into a pot of boiling water. If you don’t believe how simple this actually is, check out the video below for yourself!

Shockingly simple, right? Whisk up some eggs and parmesan to make a simple carbonara. Toss your fresh pasta with a jar of tomato sauce and some fresh basil. Or simply toss your pasta with olive oil, garlic, and a bit of parmesan for a perfectly simple yet delicious meal. Big thanks to Jamie Oliver for showing us how capable we are of creating easy yet delicious meals. I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling pasta for dinner tonight!
