Making Ravioli

A couple of days ago, we made ravioli from scratch.

 

First of all, we made the dough. We used eggs and flour. We liked making the dough into things like couches and dough-men. Then we put all of the dough together and went to play outside.

 

We put the dough through the pasta machine. That made it thin. We liked getting scraps and putting them through the machine too.

 

We laid out the thin sheets on the table and then we put filling in. We stuck them together with egg, then we cut out the pieces.

 

All the pasta was boiled in a great big pot. Hen it was cooked we ate it with parmesan cheese, tomato sauce and chopsticks.

 

I though it was really great!
