I will try and get the new fabric up in the shop sometime this week.
I spotted Jeans post the other day about making ravioli and it has been playing on my mind ever since, so that is what we did yesterday. We actually make the dough in the bread machine, I will put the recipes at the end, for those who want to give it a go!
Once the dough was made a rested we rolled it out, it is quite springy so it was a tough job rolling it out. Then we cut out circles using a cooking cutter.
Add a small amount of filling - spinach and cottage cheese (poor mans ricotta!)
Damp the edges with a little water and pop the lid on, squash the edges together.
done! Boil in salted water for 3-4 minutes
Eat with a tomato and basil sauce, yum!Everyone gave it the thumbs up and we will be making it again, Ebi-kun really enjoyed doing the filling and putting the lids on, a child friendly recipe.
This made enough for 2 adults and a small child!
For the pasta dough:
Strong (bread) flour 150g
Durum Semolina 150g (available at Ishii Seijo or Kaldi for those in Japan)
1 egg beaten
Olive oil 5ml
Put into the bread machine, choose the pasta/udon course and Start. takes about 15mins.
Place on a board & cover with cling film, let it rest in the fridge for 1 hour. Cut into 2 and roll one piece at a time.
ricotta (cottage cheese in our case) 55g
pepper to taste
Boil the spinach for 3 minutes, drain and squeeze dry - I used the salad spinner, worked a treat.
Pop everything into the food processor and blitz until combined.
And a Happy Mothers Day to all the moms out there, especially mine, because, she is of course the best one ;o)
Mothers day in Japan in on a different day so I always forget and end up having some rushed pressie delivered, hurrah for the internet :o)
Right, I have GOT to get some sewing done....
