I am a blogoholic , I can read blogs all a day long especially when it comes down to reading about food, my eyes pop out when I see something yummy which I want to make straight away.
One fine morning I was on my blog reading spree and I came across this mouth watering recipe of ravioli, that too a healthy one, I could taste it while I was reading about it. It felt so delicious in my thoughts that I couldn’t resist and wanted to make it straight away. Though am very much naive in making pasta, even more at ravioli, but I plucked up the courage and ventured out into the unknown. I arranged for all the ingredients that I could find in that few hours and started my dinner prep.
I started preparing for dough and other side my helper (naina) who dedicatedly started chopping vegetables minutely, as recently I have been more inclined towards having more veggies in my diet so I thought of making vegetable garlic sauce instead of pesto.
Not having access to pasta machine, I had to hand roll the dough to prepare the raviolis which was a bit of a tedious task. I tried many shapes and styles and finally finished off with a fork style to make it look like the ones at the restaurant.
I was very keen on taking prep photos but I got so involved while making it that I just forgot about the time lapse. Those few hours were so enriching that I had my round of meditation. The end result was deliciously satisfying. My husband got variety of shapes on his plate. For once he even exclaimed momo! I frowned at first for not getting the shape right. But seeing him getting lost in the flavor from the very first bite made it all worth it.
