Ricotta well balanced, but could have been a bit sweeter to contrast with the salt in the crust or more buttery to contrast the peppery arugula.
Crust very good – salted just right, crispy on outside, soft inside
Couldn’t really taste the olive oil that was supposed to be the star of the dish — too much arugula.
~Puzzled by the Ragu entree – a meat based sauce, but wasn’t.
Homemade ricotta salata very good, nice salt and milky, like clots of cream
Pasta – definitely homemade, with eggs – gamey though, cooked little less than al dente.
Red sauce was the puzzler – something a ’tish bitter – not sure if its the gamey undercooked egg pasta, bitter tomatoes with seeds, bitter olive oil, or if the sauce was slightly, ever so slightly burned on the bottom. Not a fan of the bitter, but on the border bitter is just frustrating.
Overall – B+ : Need to go again after all the hype from the cookbook calms.
