My neice made this in college for her roomates, Didn't have a rolling pin so she used a large long flash light...THEY ALL LOL BUT RAVED HOW DELIC... One thing to add to this is for left over dough you can roll into a long round string the thickness of a wooden spoon handle. Then cut into 1 inch pieces then drop into boiling water. Cook one minute after it comes to top. Drain and put into bread crumb mixture and you can serve with sugar or salt. Great 5 stars
