So before the summer runs away let's just take some time to make the most of the lovely summer produce!!

So am back in the kitchen today! This time for something a little more complex, complex but not complicated. It just involves a few processes but the outcome looks spectacular. A dinner party winner for sure.

Homemade ravioli is a family favourite!

 

I always make double the amount because ravioli freezes really well. So for this recipe I used 400g of flour and 4 eggs as our previous recipe for making the dough but used half the quantity, click here

I love making pasta! If there is no food in the house, I can always find flour, eggs & a bit of patience.

 

I do favour recipes which are simple but sometimes require patience. There is a huge difference between complicated recipes and ones which just require som...
