Wisconsin is not just known for its Colby and brick cheese anymore. Many European cheese makers moved here because "the milk is better and cheaper than back home." Lina Ferrari and her husband, a cheese maker, settled here from their native Italy. She still enjoys making Italian specialties, like this pasta, using the cheese her husband produces. Lina makes her pasta look like candy wrappers, but novices may have better luck with a classic ravioli shape.
