Let’s make ravioli

1) the final product

Sunday afternoon G and I decided to make homemade ravioli … cause, sure, that’s what you decide to do on Sundays right?!

We opted to try and make a multicoloured version: interlacing homemade white pasta with homemade red pasta we flavoured and coloured using a puree of red beets. It actually worked out very well. We made a filling of fresh summer peas, ricotta cheese and a little mint to stuff them with and then served it with a bacon, pea, onion, olive oil and butter dressing.

2) after letting your pasta dough rest an hour, form it into sheets

3) set up your pasta drying rack; 4) rolling the beet pasta dough

5) cut the sheets into strips and interlace; 6) run through the pasta machine again

7) set to dry awhile … you see we also made fettucine; 8) the filling

9) dab a teaspoon on the sheets; 10) till you have a row

11) cover and cut each out; 12) dust with flour and set aside till it’s time to boil

    While I know how to make ravioli and how good homemade taste,I find myself buying some from the local restaurant and cooking them at home. I think I am getting lazy.
