    Flavors aside, that photo should be on the cover of a cooking magazine

    The combo of flavors was 1 huge umami bomb ... could use some additional acidity and maybe a little sweetness. Sauce was good but need some refinement - a little "heavy".

    Thanks for the kind words - an iphone did the trick - who said iphonecams sucks

    Well played sir! I know it has been stated a few times before but I absolutely love the presentation.

    It seems the "flavor" problem has nothing to do with the pasta itself, but how was prepared.

    Making good, light pasta is pretty simple and it seems like you nailed it.

    Most any manicotti with a cheese filling is going to be relatively heavy and unami no matter how thin you make the pasta.

    That looks awesome!

    What did you feel like needed refinement?
