So the other night I was bored...I had purchased the stuff for spinach ravioli and decided that after the gym Wednesday I didn't want to watch TV or read so I broke out the pasta machine. I made a recipe that I found online. It rolled out really well but I haven't eaten them yet, so we'll see how they taste this weekend. I made it with wheat flour, which is a little healthier. While it was setting I set about to make the filling. I had some ricotta cheese that I got from the commissary and the mozzerella cheese that Mom shippped me (THANK YOU, my lovely mother!) . I squeezed out the water from the spinach and put it in a bowl. Next I added some of the ricotta and the mozzerella. Then some garlic powder, basil and just a bit of oregano and salt. Stir it all up and then went to roll out the pasta. Man, the pasta machine is the best invention! :D It allowed me to get some lovely sheets of pasta. Then I hand cut the squares. I played around with sizes and 1 versus 2 pieces of pasta. I had so much dough that I also made some angel hair pasta. I love cooking...just wish I had someone to share it with!
