I couldn't stand it. I tried out my new
toy... er, tool this afternoon. There is definitely a learning curve with the ravioli maker but, all in all, it wasn't difficult.
I used a filling of cooked chicken, blanched nettles, pepper, cayenne, shredded mozzarella and an egg. Sorry, no actual recipe to offer because I didn't really measure anything. I just threw it into the food processor until it looked right. It turned out a little dry when cooked. It would probably be better with ricotta but I14 doesn't like ricotta so this was a compromise.
After rolling the pasta dough into long sheets, it gets folded in half lengthwise and placed into the roller.
They cooked in less than 5 minutes. Dropped into boiling water, they are done when they float.
I made a tomato sauce for those who like that, but most of us ate them with a butter/herb sauce.
Definitely not an everyday food but worth the effort.
V says he sees me going on an all day pasta bender sometime soon and freezing lots of fettucini, spaghetti and raviolis. Definitely a possibility.
I've been pricing these pasta makers and ravioli attachments online and I'm thinking I got a great deal.
