Your handmade pastas never cease to amaze me. You are a true artist! Thank you for the posts.

Simona Carini

Thank you for your kind words, Diane. I am glad to read you enjoy my posts.

Rachel (Rachel's Kitchen NZ)

Oh, what a lovely story about this pasta - when my books come out of storage must read Comfort Me with Apples again. I do so enjoy Ruth's writing!

Simona Carini

Thank you, Rachel. Glad you enjoyed the post.

Deb in Hawaii

A great dish for the book Simona. It's such a unique pasta--both the shape and the inclusion of the bread dough. It looks amazing with that sauce--very dazzling and for not just husbands either. ;-)

Simona Carini

Thank you, Deb. This was a fun pasta project.

Frank @Memorie di Angelina

Pasta with leavened dough is a new one for me. Definitely have to try this! Love the new look, by the way. Very snazzy!

Simona Carini

It was a new one for me as well, Frank, but now I am wondering whether I can also make other shapes with it. Thanks!


Ah, love your homemade pasta and you always find a connection for it with your CTB posts. (Hooked up with Novel Foods for the first time with my CTB post as well.)

Simona Carini

Thank you Debra. I guess it is the Italian in me. And thanks for contributing to Novel Food!

Alicia (foodycat)

How wonderful! I've made a type of gnocchi that uses a choux paste, so it puffs up when you boil it, so I am sort of imagining that but with a sourdough tang.


Very witty post. Husband blinders, indeed! Love the new pasta shape.

Simona Carini

That sounds right, Alicia, though the sauce's flavor prevails. Thanks!

Thank you, Rachel.

Wendy, A Day in the Life on the Farm

Wow Simona.....I am soooooo impressed. What a lovely dish and your instructions are concise and easily understood. Thanks.

Simona Carini

Glad you enjoyed the post, Wendy :) Thank you for your kind words.

Simona -- your pasta repetoire continues to amaze me! cathy from Delaware Girl Eats


Great recipe and instructions. I often make extra dough when preparing for bread and then do a pizza, but what a great idea to use it for pasta. Looking forward to a Hawaii demo. :)

Simona Carini

Thank you, Cathy.

Thank you, Claudia. Let me know if you try to turn some of the extra dough into pasta. Me too :)

Amy | Amy's Cooking Adventures

Oh! Those look so yummy! They remind me of dumplings...but with yeast :)

Simona Carini

Thank you, Amy. They are kind of yeasted dumplings, yes.
