Lasagne ricce ribbons are made by rolling the pasta dough either through a pasta machine or by hand with a rolling pin on a flat surface. Once the dough is between 0.6 and 1mm thin it is cut into thick ribbons. The ends are then pressed with either a grooved roller or thin rods (originally knitting needles) to give them a wavey edge ready to be dried or cooked.
