La Cucina di Kat: Striped Pasta
My Quest to make Striped Pasta
Well I admit, I think I may have a screw loose at times! Sometimes I get a little obsessive when I cook and for the longest time I’ve been thinking about striped ravioli’s. You know those cute little packaged ones you find in places like Sam’s Club? How on earth do they make them striped?
I made a batch of pasta dough with the following ingredients:
I made extra because I wasn’t sure how much I would need for stripes! The leftovers, I just cut into Linguine. After getting the dough into a rough ball I divided it in half. I kept one half plain and split the other half into two.
I kneaded the dough separately…adding the coloring into the red and green dough
I rolled out and cut a strip of red and green dough with the Fettucini cutter and let it hang for a few minutes
I rolled out a plain pasta strip to fit the ravioli pan. Then layed strips of the cut red and green pasta and pressed it down
Fed it through the Pasta Machine again and “Voila” you have stripes!!!! I LOVE making pasta!
To Fill and make Ravioli
I made these about 8 hours before I boiled them. I just covered them with plastic wrap and put them in the refrigerator. You can freeze them at this point though. Lay them individually on a floured sheet pan, cover and freeze and then take them off the pan and put them into a freezer bag for later usage.
This was the first time I ever made this recipe and I was getting a little nervous because I tend to over-fill. Not a problem though as everything just boiled up so well!
I served these ravioli's with a Smoked Salmon Cream Sauce Click for recipe
Cook these for about 10 minutes, add them to your sauce for about a minute. Serve and top with additional sauce.
Very Pretty and extremely tasty!
