My First Attempt at Ravioli

I’ve wanted to try my hand at making ravioli for a few weeks now and after getting some fresh goat cheese from Beltane Farm this weekend I though what better time than now. For filling I also used some Bridgid’s Abbey from Cato Corners as well as a bean sprout salad I made earlier in the week. I started off by making dough with 2.5 cups of organic whole wheat flour and 3 eggs from The Farmer’s Cow.

After setting under a damp cloth for 15 minutes I rolled out long narrow pieces to setting 5 on my pasta machine. Then dotting one side with the filling and folding over the other side over I made one long strip of ravioli. After pressing firmly to seal I cut them in to individual pieces and set them on a towel to dry. Not bad for my first try!

Dark Days Challenge Week #7

Drying Pasta

Pasta Dough

I joined the Dark Days Challenge right before the hustle, bustle, and traveling of the holiday season so I’m happy to finally be back home in my kitchen cooking up some local organic meals. What a great way to start the new year! Tonight I broke out the pasta machine for the first time and made a pound of homemade spaghetti (we didn’t eat it all tonight, of course). It was pretty easy to use and turned out better than I expected. I’m looking forward to making some ravioli in the coming weeks. (more…)
