Caprese Ravioli with Roasted Tomato Pesto

“Caprese Ravioli with Roasted Tomato Pesto Sauce” from Proud Italian Cook

I have finally located the pasta machine and I’m ready to give making my own pasta a try. My dad likes to point out that no matter what I’m doing with it I must be wrong because I’m not making Asian noodles. But he’s off in Asia eating his Asian noodles so he won’t be around to comment. I’d like to try the recipe above (or whatever is similar based on what I have in the fridge) but it doesn’t use a homemade pasta so I’m going to use the recipe from this recipe (with a quick click through a translator):

The poor text translation aside (although the recipe itself is fairly decipherable), I like the “How To” photos with the cute little eggs and the pile of flour. It’s just pretty.

Foodie National Holidays: Ravioli

Wild Herb Ravioli

“Wild Herb Ravioli” from Garden Therapy

As many of you know, I’m trying to catalogue as many of the “Food Holidays” as I can find. Yes, there will be a calendar being printed at some point. One problem that I’ve come across is the difference between International and National food days. Growing up as a global nomad I’m so out of tune with things like national pride and boundaries so I don’t care what country a feast day or foodie holiday is from. ┬áSo I’m just going to declare myself the Grande (and benevolent) Dictator or the Foodie Nation and as such I wish all my subjects a very merry Ravioli Day!
