Homemade Ravioli

Ryan and I got married seven months ago and all last summer, a new wedding present would appear on our doorstep from Crate and Barrel. We knew we were coming back to Cortina in September, so we didn't want to open anything too much since it was packaged so carefully and we didn't want anything to break in our storage unit. When we started packing for Cortina, we were a little sad to part with our first matching sets of silverware and wine glasses, but we couldn't take our presents with us because honestly, if we shipped them, they still might not be here. But! There was one little present that we took with us. Our brand new ravioli stamp (thank you, Leigh)! And last night we tackled homemade ravioli.

I used this recipe to make the pasta dough. At first it looked like this:

But then we got everything figured out and it turned into this:

We made a spinach and ricotta filling and then rolled and rolled and rolled, stuffed and cut the squares. There was flour everywhere.

We were very busy! We started at 5:30 and ate at 8:00....

But, in the end they were delicious and we can't wait to try it again with different fillings.
