My husband and I had a brilliant idea the other day when we sat down
to plan our menu for a dinner party we were hosting.
What do Italians make for company - pasta!
but not just pasta how about home-made Ravioli.
Having never made ravioli from scratch we did a little
research ~ on utube ~ where we could watch others make pasta
with their KitchenAid Pasta Makers before we got elbow deep in flour.
We did learn some valuable techniques by watching a few of the videos.
I will confess that at first we did encounter a few problems.
On our very first try when we put the long noodles into the machine,
filled the top with filling and turned the crank a few times ......
AHHHH we have a disater.
The noodle got caught and wrapped around the back of the machine pulling
both sides through at the same time making a mess of noodle and sausage filling!
After a few deep breathes we were able to give it another try learning as we continued the process.
Here is my photo documentation of the process:
Making Ravioli from scratch is quite a process but the Sausage and Sage Ravioli turn out excellent.
So I guess wether or not you should make home-made ravioli depends on how adventurous you are and if you have the patience for the process. :)
