April 9 : Stuffed pasta

Who did it first—stuffed the something inside?
The bundle still had to be cooked,
but now they had two to deal with,
two edibles puttering in the boil,
one inside the other.
Through history, chefs struggled
in vain to find the perfect pairing.
You may like lobster ravioli,
or cheese tortellini,
or mushroom tortelloni.
But they’re just complications.
What your body yearns for
is starch.
