    Cool!  Got a pasta machine for Christmas and was planning to do a cream sauce on my first test tomorrow.  Gonna top it with tomatoes, basil and bacon, though.  Maybe I’ll try the sausage mix next time.

    I would love to try this pasta recipe. I love pastas but I still haven’t tried one with  wine. I bet this is delicious.
