American Sfoglino

What, you ask, is an American Sfoglino? According to the book with that title, a sfoglia is a sheet of pasta rolled by hand and a sfoglino is the pasta maker. Paul verified with his Italian relatives and they confirmed the term is correct. The book has some editing issues: you have to flip to this page, then flip back 50 pages for the next step, and they don't tell you where to find the step after that .... But the instructions and recipes are very good. Paul is getting much more adept at hand-rolling the pasta out and has made some really fabulous pastas.

Here are some Google photo albums showing some of the creations.

This next one isn't pasta; it is Potato Casserole. It is included here by virtue of being nicknamed 'Irish lasagne' by Paul.
