Here's my ghetti dinner I made for the family, I used Lida's Italy recipe.

Her dough but I've added 1/8th ( a pinch of ) sugar to min and a teaspoon of salt.

Plum tomatoes for the sauce. ( X marks the spot. )

Doing the blanch method.

Food mill is ready for the next step.

Miropaw? or however you spell it.
I think I used too many Carrots for the sauce ( that's why it turned Orange)

Tomatoes ready for the miropwa?

Making Lugunnie ( My mother did teach me some dough tricks today )

The ghetti done in it's ugly form, but very AWESOME!
