Pasta 101

One of the many perks of grandparent-hood is getting to have grandchildren :D.  I would not want to be a grandparent without them, and mine happen to be super awesome. 

So one day last week, my granddaughter, Leah, and I decided to spend the day together, and we also thought it would be most fun to make some pasta and turn it into raviolis.  So that’s what we did and we were right… it was great fun.   Leah is 8 and a very creative, ingenious child, so it was no surprise that she turned out to be a superior pasta-maker.

First we made the dough...

Then we made the stuffing (4-cheese) and made our raviolis....


 Then we ate them...

And we decided that making pasta is really fun and quite delicious.

I'm too excited about cooking for crismus to work, so here I am looking at pasta recipes. These ravioli may be on the top of the list for our dinner! Leah is just way too cute :)
