Hmmm, that was debatable today.
Darren has been hounding me to make ravioli for probably 6 months or more (since we got the pasta machine actually). So today to get my mind off of other matters, I decided to make it for dinner tonight.
I went to our local kitchen store and purchased one of these nifty moulds
and started with the pasta machine. I don't have a love for this little machine, I just can't seem to get it to work and instead of making pasta in minutes, it's hours for me, hence why I haven't made the ravioli before today.
Do you like my clean workspace?
So after about 2 hours (I kid you not!) It was time to prepare some filling and try out my nifty new purchase, well lets just say the first attempt was a complete disaster and after much scraping, it all went in the chook bucket. You see, not having my mind on the job, I put warm mixture into the pasta which of course made the pasta stick to the metal ahhhhhh.
Second try worked better, infact I managed to make the rest up quite easily but then ran out of time to make my pumpkin and fetta filling as I don't eat meat, looks like it's a vegemite sandwich for dinner.
Total time taken to make dinner, 4 hours. Yes you read it right, 4 hours and I haven't made the sauce yet.
Will I attempt to make this again? Yes, because I really need to work that pasta maker out.
Was it theraputic? Actually yes, I had P!NK and Glee blaring from the ipod dock and with the cooking, it did take my mind off of things.
