This warm soft puff pastry combined with the spicy, cheesy, and garlicky stuffing makes this the star at any appetizer buffet. In 20 minutes you can have an impressive small plate ready to pop in the oven and serve at your next party or as the entre with a salad for meal.
I loved to make these soft doughy pastas with my mom. We made hundreds of them at a time rolling each individually off a floured fork. Sometimes she used a gnocchi machine to make them but I always preferred creating each pasta bundle one at a time. Try making these tasty morsels with your kids or friends and watch them fly off the platter covered with your favorite sauce!
While visiting Tuscany two years ago, a wonderful Italian cook taught me this easy way to make a luscious Italian Marinara from tomatoes right from the garden. I buy my overripe tomatoes from local farmer's markets for $1.00 a pound or pick them from my garden. Buon Appetito!
