It is unfortunate some people gave bad review just because they didn't follow the simple direction . The recipe said for best result using the baking rack , they will stick and it will make clean up a pain , but it will make your chicken crispy top and bottom . I only have 1 baking rack , so i always end up having to use parchment paper for the ot"

It was my first time making ravioli from scratch . Although i wasn't sure with the filling , the filling turned out very superb !! I love it !! And as far as the pasta dough , it works fine for me .
