Note: I know I was MIA for several months, but I think I'm honestly back in the game. I've spent hours and hours going overboard making food for parties (first the cookies, now this pasta), and I've even gotten back into documenting the minor meals that I make, in case they end up blog-worthy. So have no fear, I think I'm here to stay for awhile. Now, if I could just sit down and write my damn book...Happy post-holidays food coma! I hope you are recovering nicely from your Christmas binge-eating session, and preparing yourself (and your stomach) for a New Years filled with cheesy appetizers and sugary desserts. Yum.
This was my first "real" Christmas this year, and I'm thrilled to say it went well. What do I mean by real Christmas? Well, Kevin and I got a tree together, decorated it, woke up early on Christmas day, opened presents, went back to sleep, and then spent the day with his family. His mom even knitted me my very own stocking
Since the family party was a bring your own appetizers and desserts kind of deal, I decided to hand-make some pasta dish. From there I chose ravioli, and from there I decided that striping it with red and green was a great idea.
As it turns out, it's not too difficult as long as you have a pasta roller that has a fettucine cutter attachment (I got mine for like $30 at Bed, Bath and Beyond). It is extremely time consuming, however, especially if it is Christmas Eve in Buffalo and your Kitchenaid is in Rochester, 60 miles away.
