This is an Italian pastry filled with a creamy pudding. I got the recipe from an Italian family I use to work for many years ago. Try different fillings if you desire, chocolate cream or ricotta.

- In a large bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, salt and 1 cup of sugar. Cut in margarine by pinching between your fingers, or using a pastry blender, until the mixture has lumps no larger than small peas. Make a well in the center, and pour in the eggs, 1/2 cup milk and 2 teaspoons vanilla. Stir until the mixture comes together, then knead for about 5 turns on a lightly floured surface.
- Roll out the dough to about 1/4 inch thickness. Grease two 12 cup muffin tins or tart pans. Cut out 20 circles using a 3 inch cookie cutter or drinking glass. Line the muffin cups with the dough. Set aside the remaining dough to cut out tops for the cups.
- In the top of a double boiler, or in a metal bowl set atop a saucepan of simmering water, whisk together the cornstarch and 3/4 cup sugar. Gradually whisk in 3 of the egg yolks, and 1quart milk. Heat, stirring constantly, until thick and bubbling. Remove from the heat, and stir in the butter and 1 teaspoon of vanilla until the butter is melted.
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Fill the pastry shells half way with the vanilla cream. Roll out remaining dough, and cut into circles for lids. Place over the top of the pastry shells, and seal the edges by pressing with the tines of a fork. Whisk the remaining egg yolk with a fork, and brush the tops of the pastry cups.
- Bake for 25 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden brown. Let cool in the tins before carefully loosening the edges to remove. Dust with confectioners' sugar before serving.

- Add the pancetta to a heavy large skillet over medium heat. Add olive oil and saute until golden brown, about 8 minutes. Add the onion and saute until tender, about 5 minutes. Season with salt. Add the garlic and red pepper flakes. Saute until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Stir in the tomato puree. Simmer uncovered over medium-low heat until the sauce thickens slightly and the flavors blend, about 15 minutes. Season the sauce with salt, to taste.
- Meanwhile, boil the linguine in a large pot of boiling salted water until tender but still firm to the bite, stirring occasionally, about 8 minutes. Drain, reserving 1 cup of the cooking liquid.
- Toss the linguine with the sauce in the skillet, adding some of the reserved cooking liquid until the pasta is moist but being careful not to dilute the sauce. Toss with the cheese. Season with salt, to taste.
HOW TO MAKE HANDMADE PASTA RECIPE BY TASTY
Making fresh, homemade pasta dough doesn't have to be tedious! All you need is some flour, eggs, and a tiny bit of arm strength as you knead it all together - no food processor or fancy stand-mixer required. And once your noodles are ready, all it takes is 2-3 minutes of cooking before you can add your sauce, sprinkle your cheese, and open that wine.

- On a clean, sturdy work surface, turn out your chosen flour(s) and salt and make a large well in the middle with your hands.
- Whisk the eggs, egg yolks, and olive oil together in a medium bowl until combined, then pour the mixture into the well.
- Using the same fork, whisk the eggs, slowly incorporating more and more flour into the eggs by moving your fork along the edges of the well.
- Once almost all of the flour is incorporated, start bringing the dough together with your hands. (The dough should be malleable, but not sticky--add more flour if the dough is sticking too much to your hands or the surface. Alternatively, if it's too dry and tough, whisk another egg with 1 tablespoon of water and use your hand to sprinkle some of the mixture over the dough, continuing to do so until the dough is easier to knead.)
- Knead the dough for 7-10 minutes, until the dough is smooth and elastic. When you poke the dough, it should spring back.
- Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and let rest at room temperature for 30 minutes to an hour, or until the dough does not spring back when poked.
- Unwrap the dough and cut into 8 equal pieces so that it's easier to work with. Take 1 piece and wrap the rest in the plastic wrap so that they don't dry out.
- Lightly flour your work surface, and begin rolling out the piece of dough into one long piece. Then, fold the top third down, and the bottom third over that, like a letter. Rotate the dough 90˚ and roll the piece back into a long shape. This helps form a more even rectangular shape and makes the dough a little bit easier to work with.
- Continue rolling out the dough until it is very thin. When you lift the dough, you should be able to see your hands through it.
- Fold the top and bottom of the rectangle to meet in the middle, then fold over again--this will make the dough easier to cut. Cut the dough to your ideal shape. Loosen or unravel the cut dough immediately, so it doesn't stick, sprinkle with a bit of extra flour, or semolina, if using. Let the pasta sit out for about 30 minutes to dry out slightly.
- Bring a large pot of heavily salted water to a boil. Add the pasta and stir to ensure it doesn't clump. Cook for 2-3 minutes, or 30 seconds to 1 minute after the pasta comes to the surface (fresh pasta will cook much faster than dried pasta!)
- Take out a noodle and taste for doneness. Once cooked to your liking, remove the pasta from the water, being sure to save at least 1 cup (240 ML) of the pasta cooking water.
- Add the cooked pasta into your preferred sauce and stir to coat, adding some of the reserved pasta water if needed to add a bit of body and silkiness to the sauce.

PASTICIOTTI OR PASTA CIOTTI
Pasticiotti (or called Pasta Ciotti, as referred to in this recipe by Mary Ann Esposito in her book Celebrations Italian Style) are small individual cream or custard filled tarts with either a vanilla cream or custard filling or chocolate cream or ricotta cheese filling. They are a wonderful Italian treat. You may make them as small 3-inch tarts or even smaller "mini" tarts. *Notes: Makes 1 dozen (3-inch) tarts. If you make miniature tarts, bake for only 8 to 10 minutes. This recipe makes about 2 1/2 dozen miniature tarts.

- Sift together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt into a large bowl.
- Cut in the shortening with a pastry blender until the mixture resembles coarse cornmeal.
- Add the milk, vanilla, and egg and use your hands to mix the ingredients into a smooth ball of dough.
- Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and set aside.
- In a medium saucepan, whisk together the cornstarch and sugar, making sure there are no lumps.
- Gradually whisk in the milk.
- Add the butter, place the saucepan over medium heat, and cook, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon, until thickened.
- Remove from the heat and stir in the egg yolk and almond extract. Set the custard aside.
- To Assemble and Bake:
- Divide the dough in half.
- On a lightly floured surface, roll one piece into an 11-inch circle, about 1/4-inch thick.
- Using a 3-inch fluted biscuit cutter, cut out circles of dough and press each one into the bottom and up the sides of 3 x 1 1/4-inch tart pans.
- Reroll the scraps and cut out additional circles. You should have 12 tart shells.
- Place the tart pans on a cookie sheet. Spoon about 2 tablespoons of filling into each tart shell.
- Roll out the second piece of dough and cut out 3-inch circles. Place a circle over each tart and pinch the edges closed.
- With a pastry brush, paint the top of each tart with the egg wash. Refrigerate the tarts for 30 minutes.
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees . Bake the tarts on the middle oven rack for 12 to 15 minutes, or until the tops are golden brown. Remove the tarts to racks and let cool completely.
- Carefully remove the tarts from the pans. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

- Saute the ground beef in a skillet until browned. Set aside. Grind the carrots, parsley, onions, and garlic together or chop very finely. Heat the oil in a large saucepan or Dutch oven. Add the vegetables and cook, stirring, until they begin to brown. Transfer the meat to the vegetable mixture, scraping off any brown bits from the skillet. Stir in the tomato sauce, about 2 cups dried mushrooms and spices. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 2-3 hours or until thickened. Taste and correct the seasonings. Serve over steaming pasta, passing grated cheese to be sprinkled over each serving, if desired.

This is a pasta dish from my grandparents who came here from Italy. It's been a favorite with everyone, and I am asked how to make it all the time. I don't know anyone who doesn't like it, especially kids.
