Have I ever mentioned that I love making tutorials? and I'm accepting requests!
Tutorial divided en three so you can see them in blocks and not an unit, you can use any part of the tutorial at your best convenience:
You can use the dough to make any kind of pasta (ravioli, lasagna, spaghetti, etc) You can fill the raviolis with anything you fancy, or use the filling as a healthy dip. The same technique to prepare and assemble the pasta can be used for almost any kind of pasta!
Let me know what you think, and if you try it please give me some feedback!
oooh I didn't know what spanakopita was, I had to google it, but it does sounds similar xD I would recommend a cheese with a nice flavor, I use a delicious riccota that is a bit salty, that adds a nice touch to the filling and needs little extra seasoning
A really nice Italian guy I met told me that you guys don't eat as much garlic and onions as we do yet, every Italian restaurant serves everything with lots of onion and garlic, so we tend to believe that that's the distinctive flavor of Italian food. I think that's very weird!
I would love to try it with cheese and potatoes! Do you mash the potatoes and fill the ravioli with it?
ehehe he garlic and onion thing...it's funny tho... lot's of people i know don't like them both... or just don't like one... we think we don't use it much... but for example in my house almost every dish has both garlic and onion... so is not the distinctive flavor but surely is almost everywhere... is more like an additional flavour...a very important one ! i can look for the recipe if you want... basically they have mashed potatoes (just boiled and mashed with a fork..not the thing you can buy ready) cheese...pecorino cheese... but maybe just a good strong-seasoned cheese can do... some mint leaves...olive oil or lard... and of course garlic and salt... you can also use onion inside... it's maybe hard to do... it depends on the region... we have those [link] normal other people in italy maybe have [link] lol... maybe i'm not helping... i can make a tutorial if my mum wants to make some XD
xD Ricotta cheese is my best friend. It makes yummy dinner foods like this ravioli (which I should totally try this recipe sometime), and then you can use it to make desserts! Like these yummy cookies my aunt makes....hm....and cossata cake.
To be honest I'm a vegetarian and I don't cook with meat, but I asked my boyfriend (a big meat lover) and he said that bolognese is the best meat filling for raviolis just drain it so it's not too liquid.
If you meant to use this same recipe but add meat, then I would try pancetta or jamón serrano. But if you can't find them, I'm sure that if you fry and cut a bit of bacon it will be a great meaty addition just mix it with the filling.
Actually I think I'll try that next time for my boyfriend, I'm sure he'll like it
I'm almost sure that it'll work Good thing you asked, I've been thinking about it and I'm confident that it will taste good too! If you're not allergic to them, I would recommend you adding some pine nuts to the filling to compensate They're great in this recipe! But a little hard to find sometimes...
I didn't know people could be allergic to onions and garlic then I assume you must be allergic to shallots too?
