yesterday i fought an upward battle of making my own pasta dough. i failed.
so i called up zack koulermos... aka older brother... aka wealth of culinary knowledge... aka badass... to talk over why i fucked up. twice.
my filling of ricotta and spinach was dead on. the dough though gave me a frustrating struggle of epic proportions (plus i'd just finished a ten mile training run). so i lost. chinese takeout won(ish).
but, i said, "fuck you pasta dough." and found another recipe. thomas keller, on zack's recommendation, showed me the way with his simple (AND CORRECTLY PROPORTIONED) dough recipe.
the end product was legit, and is pictured below.
