Cooking with your house guests

September 20, 2010 No comments
Bobi and Bella helped with the pasta dinner on Saturday night.  We made fresh pasta dough (recipe in an earlier post) and we used the dough for two types of ravioli:  veal and sausage and cheese.  These were served with pesto and a fresca marinara.  These recipes will be featured in the handmade pasta chapter of Cook the Part.  The recipe for the cheese filled ravioli follows:

Cheese Filling

1 pound ricotta
1/3 cup parmesan, freshly grated
3 large cloves garlic, crushed
1 ½ teaspoons salt
½ teaspoon black pepper
3 large egg yolks
2 tablespoons Italian parsley, finely chopped
¼ pound mozzarella, finely diced

 

1.  Mix
Mix all ingredients, incorporating the eggs one at a time.

2.  Chill.
Cover and chill until ready to fill raviolis.

    I loved the past dough recipe and the idea of using the bread maker for pizza dough. the ideas are great, the photos are perfect, I thought I got some of the aromas from the pizza!!
