Yesterday, I took full advantage of my last day of vacation by making homemade ricotta, homemade pasta, and transforming them into lasagna. I only wished I had home-canned tomatoes left from last summer. I was inspired by the ricotta recipe posted at Simple, Green, Frugal Co-op, and I was surprised by how easy it was. I also used my pasta machine (a wedding present) for the first time. My brother Nathaniel helped me set it up and figure out how to use it.
Mixing the dough on the counter.
Rolling out the lasagna noodles.
The finished product was wonderful!
