Striped Pasta

EDITORS NOTE: This is the first blog post I ever wrote.  It’s pretty bad! But I love it because even though it is very different from what I do now, there is a certain similarity to the feel and flow of it.  When I wrote this post, I had no intention of anything coming from this blog.  I wasn’t planning on eventually leaving my computer science career or writing a cookbook.  It was just for fun to document some of the interesting stuff I was trying out in the kitchen.

These pictures were taken with my cell phone because my camera was dead. I plan on buying a new camera in the next few months and the picture quality here will improve drastically.

We recently made lasagna rolls at my apartment, but wanted to make it different so we tried experimenting with different color pasta dough.

We first used a basil puree to color one dough

The next we colored with tomato paste

We placed the colored strips onto the rolled sheet of plain dough

Mandi’s shoes make a cameo appearance in this shot of drying pasta

Fresh pasta only needs a few minutes in boiling water


This is the moment we realized that this may not be the best aplication for the striped pasta sheets

Again, Sorry about the bad quality pictures, I am getting the new camera soon!
