I think I first started making these in the mid-80's. I live in a region that has incredible Italian heritage (i.e. amazing food!) But some of the recipes are very labor intensive. So, I found a method where I could get the same taste without having to make my own pasta dough. Don't get me wrong... I love making my own pasta. But, it takes time... lots of time.

For a lighter Italian meal, give these a try... you'll be glad you did!
