Making Casunziei

Yesterday we were invited over to our friend Paul's house to learn how to make casunziei. Casunziei are little half moon-shaped raviolis that are typical to our region - you can find them in any restaurant here made with a beet or spinach filling and topped with warm butter and poppy seeds. Yesterday, our Italian friends Luca and Ellie taught us how to make them from scratch, with a fig filling which is native to their hometown of Fassa. We ate them with cooked pears and poppy seeds, and of course they were completely delicious!
