I always loved Sunday night family dinners as a kid, and now that I have my own kiddo, and it’s one of the only nights of the week my husband doesn’t have to do homework, I’m trying to get in the habit of having a real meal each week on Sunday. By real meal I mean, we stand and eat and try to get our child to sit down and eat as well, but regardless, we are all in the same room eating something other than refried beans and crackers.
I was at the mall today at my favorite cooking store (Sur la Table) and picked up a ravioli cutter. I didn’t intend for us to have ravioli for dinner, but when Harris offered, I certainly wasn’t going to turn it down!
We started with some ricotta, egg, sage and a dash of nutmeg. Mix it all up real good!
Chop up some spinach and watch those fingers!
Then we used some sausage we had in the freezer, removed it from the casing and cooked it up good. Once cooked thoroughly, mix it in with the ricotta.
Appease your screaming child by offering her a cracker and a book.
Then, get down to business making your pasta sheets. If you’d like detailed instructions, please leave a comment, but if you have a KitchenAid attachment, just follow the simple instructions in the booklet.
Look mom, Im being good now!
Drop about a tablespoon of your ricotta mixture per ravioli.
