    Finally got a chance to check out the new videos..!! Great recepes, and fun to watch.

  8. Josh says:

    The pasta can be used immediately after it is made right? I just want to be sure since you put yours in the freezer in between making it and cooking it.

    Excited to try it :)

  9. Chef Tomm says:

    Hello Josh, You can use the pasta right away. If you leave it out too long or put it in the fridge it will collect water and turn to mush. Let me know how it comes out!

  19. Erika says:

    Dear Chef Tomm,

    I love your videos, I’m a college student and how quick, easy and simple the recipes you demonstrate makes cooking actual meals that much easier. I did have a few questions regarding these pasta recipes though, I do not have a pasta maker and was wondering if a rolling pin and knife can work as a substitute, if the pasta keeps in the freezer, and for how long, and whether or not the sauces keep well in the refrigerator or freezer as well?

    Thanks again for the great recipes and cooking advice!


  20. Chef Tomm says:

    Hello Erika,
    Thanks for your kind words! You can use a rolling pin to roll out pasta. I have done this on several occasions when one wasn’t available. A quick tip for cutting the pasta evenly is to roll it up then slice it into the desired widths. The pasta will stay in the freezer for a few months and so will the sauces. I wouldn’t put the pasta in the refrigerator as it will sog out but the sauces will last a few days. Thanks for taking time to write to me. If you like you can like me on facebook under Culinary Secrets with Chef Tomm. I also am on that more often, several times per day and could respond quicker to your questions. Thanks again for writing.

    Hey Chef Tom BIG Fan! What do you mean by reducing the heavy cream in the alfredo sauce?

  22. Chef Tomm says:

    Reducing the heavy cream for the alfredo is an easy but tricky thing. You just have to place it over high heat and reduce it. Watch out for it boiling over on you!

  23. Mark Evenson says:

    Chef, thank you for your time and efforts. I just yesterday found your site.
    In the past I have hung my fresh pasta to dry while I waited to cook it. Not too long, but I was wondering if the freezer accomplishes the same thing? If holing the pasta for longer times in the freezer do you vaccuum seal? When you cooked your pasta out of the freezer it did seem to be pretty frozen, what was the time frame in the freezer for the video?

    Thanks aagain. A pleasure!


  24. Gloria says:

    Chef Tomm – you rock! Love your videos. I always learn something new from you! Thank you.

  25. Darryl says:

    Ok its settled..I’m HUNGRY now…
    Great vids and so so easy to follow…I’ve already tried the General Tso chicken.. I watched this mainly for the pesto..NO more store brought pesto for me….Thanks Chef

  26. Chef Tomm says:

    You reduce the heavy cream by cooking it over heat, the water evaporates out giving you a thicker cream.
