Apple iPad Air

iPad Air is 20 percent thinner and weighs just one pound, so it feels unbelievably light in your hand. It comes with a 9.7-inch Retina display, the A7 chip with 64-bit architecture, ultrafast wireless, powerful apps, and up to 10 hours of battery life.2 And over 475,000 apps in the App Store are just a tap away.

Customer Review
The iPad Air is everything I imagined it would be and a lot more. This latest generation iPad is so much lighter than
previous versions; it is now approaching the weight of a Kindle – meaning it is easy to hold for a long time. The body is about two inches narrower, making it easier to hold. The retina display is so darn sharp and looks great………..

Get the Marcato Atlas Model 150 Pasta Maker Here

Home made pasta is probably the best way to serve dinner to any size family, but not everyone has the time to make pasta, sauce, and the best homemade pasta dinner. The marcatopasta brand of pasta makers will take the complication from creating your own homemade noodles.

The Marcato Atlas 150 is probably one of the more popular choices of marcatopasta products. This pasta maker makes  different types of pasta, to include spaghetti noodlesi, alfredo noodles, lasagna noodles, ravioli noodles, fettuccine, capellini, tortelli, tortellini, tortelloni noodles and other noodles that you may want to make pasta with.

Here are some facts about the types of pasta and how they can be adapted for different gastronomic occasions.


hearty ravioli

Heart-shaped Ravioli courtesy of Mahalo's Ravioli Page-


Pasta made by stuffing and sealing a filling of choice between two short,thick strips of pasta dough ( strips such as these can be cut from a flattened sheet of dough passed through the Marcato’s atlas 150 rollers)

The word ravioli originates from the term riavvolgere which means “to wrap”. Ravioli can be adapted creatively to commemorate a particular occasion. For example, you could stuff your wife or girlfriend’s favourite filling in between two heart-shaped strips of dough you could cut out simply by pressing a heart-shaped mold into flatten dough strips.You could then place the filling between the two “heart” layers and make nice,small pinches repeatedly around to create a beautifully edged seal for the filling. If you are thinking of conjuring a nice pasta meal to impress your dates for Valentine’s dinner or planning a delightful meal for a wedding anniversary  this is one approach to consider.

A recipe for ravioli with a creamy, tomato sauce  is  provided in the widget on the right named Recipes.

Flattened strands of pasta thicker than spaghetti and about 3mm wide (doable through a pasta-maker with thickness adjustment settings particularly of the Marcato Atlas 150). It is a fine, egg pasta that complements well with creamy sauces (see widget on right entitled Recipes). If you are in the mood for creamy, cheesy pasta, have it made with tagliolini. See widget on right entitled Recipes for a delicious recipe for Tagliolini.




Image compliment of Foodrecipe-


literally means “little ribbons” in Italian and as the name suggestions refer to long, flattened ribbon-like strands of pasta (the Marcato Atlas 150 cutting blade has an edge just for this).

Fettuccine Alfredo is a famous fettuccine recipe in which melted cheese is used to form a smooth, rich emulsion coating over the pasta to create that strong flavour and taste.

A quick, easy-to-make recipe for a Delicious Fettuccine Dish can be prepared as such :

Fettuccine Al Fresco

1/2 cup diced minced mutton or chicken (optional)
1 tablespoon of vegetable/olive oil
1/8 of a teaspoon of  garlic powder or 1 minced garlic from a single clove
1/4-1/2 cup of chopped onion
1/4 cup of chopped fresh parsley or 1 tablespoon of dried parsley flakes
Parmesan cheese(grated)
1 jar of Prego (All rights reserved) (Mushroom/traditional Italian Sauce)

12 ounces of hand-made or pre-packed fettuccine cooked in boiling water with a tablespoon of salt (*healthwatchers may add a pinch of salt or 1 teaspoon whichever appropriate) 7-10 min and drained. 


1. Pour the oil in an appropriate sauce pan over medium heat. Add the  
     minced  mutton/chicken(optional), onion, garlic powder/minced garlic  
     and cook  until the onion is golden brown.
2. Add the sauce and the parsley in the sauce pan and let it simmer for a
3. Pour the sauce with its incredients over the fettuccine and sprinkle it
