Now let’s see. Last weekend I made the pie dough for the Pizzagaina. That means this weekend is when we bake the Pizzagaina. Yup today was the day I made my Mom’s Pizzagaina recipe.

Again I am sitting here after a day making my mom’s recipe with a glass of wine next to me and I would love to be able to pick up the phone and give her a call. Of course I am sure she would have been following my day’s work on Instagram.
For dinner tonight I made a recipe I had pinned not too long ago. Pasta with Fried Eggs and Pangritata. Of course making 6 Pizzagaina and another tart, Zucchini and Potato, would not make me not make homemade pasta for tonight. I used the food processor and the “new” favorite recipe for pasta.
