hello epicmafia, my hours at work were recently cut + school is online so i have a lot of time on my hands. this means of course that it's finally time for me to refocus on my dream of becoming a domestic italian tradwife

so i had a mental break and bought a pasta maker; itt i'll be posting my fresh pasta attempts + imminent failures. if anyone has semolina fever like me i urge you to join in with comments / critiques / recipes / raviolis

last night i tried to make ravioli for the first time, it took about 15 hours but tbh they turned out rly sexy

my pretty squash


i sent this pic to my mom so she would be proud of me


rolled to 9 bc i'm a masochist



so many ravioli




buon appetito

*standard dough (2.25 cup ap flour + salt + 4 large eggs) rested abt 3 hours
filling is roasted butternut, ricotta, lemon zest, parmesan, salt/pep
sauce is brown butter, thyme, sage, more zest

review: the ravioli were rly good. the dish needed slightly more acidity bc the filling and sauce were so rich, zest of half lemon wasn't cutting it. next time i would maybe cut back on the butter + add a little dry white wine to the sauce. also add more shallot. filling called for brown sugar but i didn't add any bc it was already so sweet, almost pumpkin pie-like. too much. the noodles themselves were gr8, definitely the most successful dough i've made so far! i am learning that resting, rolling thru pasta make many many many times, and lots of extra flour are key. raviolis were a fun learning experience but maybe not worth how much time i put into them.

7/10

Thank you for your review. I tried to copy your recipe but upon hearing that it ended up being a 7/10 I've scrapped it midway through in favour of making ravioli baklawa!

I hate to do this and be a critic but I give this pasta review a 3/10 at best, I could give it a higher score but that would require more effort than was put into this piece. As an audience member, I think I speak for the rest of us and all of us when I say we deserve a little more regarding these creations.

Such as, what was the rationale between choosing this sort of pasta on a given day? Do any of these pasta creations have natural properties like essential oils that would make them more than a tasty creation and could promote health benefits like curing atrial fibrillation?

Also the steps were a bit scattered. You showed some ravioli being made but I counted 9 then immediately skipped forward to a million, how does this happen? I know this isn't a class but you can't skip the entire character development arc in favor of the ending that'll be ret-conned in later renditions anyways.

I hope you take these points to heart EM user peach!

P.S. - Don't start first image off with a picture of a fruit, I almost tabbed out thinking this was a troll post because I was promised pasta creations and got a picture of squash instead and squash isn't pasta!

made some very rudimentary fettuccine the other night. i tried a new dough using only yolks but i can't find semolina flour anywhere !!!! gonna order some for too much money online soon so i can make fancy pappardelle for my friends. turned out pretty ok, sauce didn't look sexy but it tasted gooood. olive oil / tomato paste / shallot / red wine / garlic and finished w/ heavy cream + a bit of butter + peccorino. i was not feeling very creative ]: "do better peach!!!" - everyone

hi guys ( : i was feeling crazy yesterday so i decided to make some tortellini at 2am. filling was 4oz goat cheese, chopped+sauteed spinach, a little honey + lemon juice, parmesan, and s+p. tried out a yolkier dough but it ended up being a little hard to work with, still need to change those proportions a little bit . . . .



these things were a labor of love and the first 10 looked hilariously bad. i need to practice the shaping more but i think they are pretty cute. polite little pasta snails.
