Mimi Tackles Pasta Making!

IMG_0580There it is — my hand-made pasta!  It’s not as easy as they make it look on TV ( Yes, Anne Burrell, I mean you — HA!!!).  No kidding — mixing eggs and flour by hand on your countertop while keeping the eggs in that nice little well of flour and not running all over the place is tricky.  So, my first batch was a disgusting, sticky, gloppy mess and went right in the trash can.  The second attempt worked out fine.  Here’s the dish I made with it.

Sage Roasted Butternut Squash with Fresh Ricotta and Grated Parmigiano Reggiano

…and a Diva “Dishes”.

Well I think you can’t go wrong with the ingredients Mimi put in this dish and butternut squash is a favorite in our house.  On the other hand, making your own pasta?  You’ve got to be kidding me!  I’m just as happy to let someone else do the pasta making.  Fresh or dry, it all tastes great.
