Hand-Shaped Pasta is Easy
The dough is supple and lovely to work with, and the little bundles are a pleasure to form. So get out that pasta roller, or borrow one: This dish is fun and dazzling!
1. Roll the Dough
Roll sections of dough through a pasta machine at each setting until very thin.
2. Cut the Dough
Cut dough into 4 × 3--inch rectangles using a pizza wheel or fluted cutter.
3. Moisten the Dough
Moisten long sides of dough with water, and fold over filling to enclose it.
4. Twist the Dough
Twist dough edges in opposite directions as if sealing candy in a wrapper.
5. Arrange Pasta
Arrange pasta on a baking sheet dusted with semolina to prevent sticking.
