Raviolis are easy so make some

Raviolis are such a fun way to kick up a pasta dish and they are easy to make. You might be a little intimidated by the idea of making your own fresh pasta but there is really no reason to fear - its easy and once you have made the pasta then raviolis are inches away.

Basic pasta is egg and flour but this pasta has boiled carrots, I boiled the carrots until they were soft then I incorporated them into the egg and flour mixture. You can use spinach, butternut squash - you could even use peanut butter, if you were so inclined.

Make the dough, roll out the dough and fill the dough - thats ravioli. You can watch this video for a little more of the tutorial,



Now, you dont need me to tell you that the best part about making ravioli is eating ravioli.


Go make some pasta and stuff it! Ravioli of fresh carrot pasta with a crab filling served with a pepperoncino arrabiatta sauce with cream, basil oil and crab roe - complexity with simplicity and layers and layers of flavor!

I like your carrot "twist" on these ravioli. Are you sure you're not part Italian?

Marjie said...

They look good. How long would it take to make, oh, 300?

Yes, the best part is the eating, but I think they are fun to make. I need that tool you used though. Looks so good.

Not only specific, delicious! And I love the raviolis! Everyone should make some fresh, wholesome pasta dishes. Way to educate!

BEAUTIFUL. I miss blogging. This is so much nicer than facebook.

snugs said...

you have to tell me where to get one of those stampers when I am there, because the way I have been making them is not very easy!

Jamie said...

Perfect! And I love the added carrots! I have tried making ravioli twice and was not quite happy with the results...but now you've convinced me to try again. After my trip to Italy.... :-)

Pam said...

You really make them look easy! Now you've made me curious and I just might have to give it a try. They look really tasty!

They look delicious! I've never made homemade ravioli but maybe someday I'll give it a try....I'm sure they are so much better than storebought ones.

I like your ravioli tool. It the one&kitchen tool I feel is missing in my life... My knives are still great! GREG

I have a rav tray which in some ways is even easier bc you can pressout about 8-16 ravioli for the price of one. But honestly, I don't use it as often as I should. It IS easy. But I'm lazy :)
