Winding down to wind back up

As the clock for 2012 slowly winds down many of us are behind the scenes winding up the clock for 2013. I have many exciting things to share with you in the coming year and I hope you come along for the ride, but in true blogger fashion I am not going to say one more word about that and leave you hanging with a pasta post.

Making spinach pasta is as easy as can be - creamed spinach, egg, semolina flour and mix and knead and mix and knead until it is glossy. Roll out the dough as thin as you can get it (I have a machine so I stop before it gets too thin) and you are ready to make a world of things like ravioli, for example.
Spinach and crab ravioli is fast, easy, rich and satisfying.
Once you have the sheets rolled out you can then run them through a pasta cutter to make fettucini or spaghetti or angel hair or you can cut them with a knife or you can tear them into rags.

The easiest thing to do with large pasta sheets is to make a lasagna. Crab Lasagna - layers of fresh made spinach pasta, layers of lump crab and crab claws, layers of cheese and creamed spinach, layers of fresh marinara all topped with a super creamy b├ęchamel and served with some buttery tomato and garlic sauce. Eat drink and be merry my friends - see you in 2013.
