Pasta Dough

Pasta Dough I've been meaning to post a picture of the pasta extravaganza from a couple of weeks ago. Amy came over & we started from scratch, making the dough, three fillings, and two sauces. I'll need to practice more rolling out the dough & handling it, especially making ravioli. Surprisingly, very few of the little pasta packages burst when we were cooking them and, anyway, it was one of the best meals I've contributed to in a long time. And one of the happiest. Playing in the kitchen -- especially with a friend -- is one of my greatest pleasures in life. Note: This is my first attempt to use Flickr to post directly to the blog. The link above goes to my Flickr page. Seems to work pretty well, though I wish it wouldn't automatically add a line with "originally uploaded by . . ."
