Pasta Grannies

One of my favorite YouTube channels is Pasta Grannies, where  various Grannies from all over Europe show how they make pasta of all sorts of shapes and sizes.

It is very addictive with many, many shows. Here is the link.

Our youngest daughter and husband have arrived for Christmas from USA this year and as another Pasta Granny convert, they decided to make a ricotta and spinach ravioli.

Rolling the pasta, several times to make thinner and thinner.

Once the dough is made using a 4 000 flour and rested then it is a case of rolling it out several times after lowering  the width of the  rollers each time, and the pasta gets longer and longer. I have had all the gear but it has been a long time since I made pasta, never ravioli though always fettuccine or similar.

Tried this first  inherited from my Italian Mother in Law.

The first tray they tried was useless as it stuck every where so then they went bigger, with a roller. The plastic roller cutter wasn't that sharp but it worked out ok. A metal one would have been better.

Cutting the shapes.

They sealed very easily with a bit of water around the edges and then a Carbonara Sauce was made up. The ravioli was cooked in boiling water and added to the sauce.


With a bit of parsley added on top one of the nicest meals I have had in a long time. This has given me inspiration to try it again.
