How to "ripple" homemade lasagna noodles

SkipII Jan 19, 2007 10:06 PM

I've got the noodle part down, but how do I get that rippled edge?

I can see it coming: there probably is a lasagna rippling toolk you can buy at Sur La Table, right?

    Do you have to have it? I've never seen authentic lasagna (ie in a good Italian restaurant) that had rippled noodles, since the pasta is always handmade sheets. Ripples to me=mediocre Americanized lasagna.

      I agree. It's more rustic when it is NOT rippled.

      Pie crimper? Under constraint, couldn't you crimp with the tines of a fork?
