My friends, I am here to promise you something. There are few things more decadent in life than indulging in the making and eating of fresh, homemade, pasta. Maybe add a glass of wine, a new mystery, and a bath and you've got the best night ever (true introvert status, here). Assuming you eat carbs, gluten, and dairy...please continue forward
Yes, homemade pasta is a "process." But, it's really not that intense. I have dealt with more finicky cupcake recipes than fresh pasta. It is simple--3 ingredients. Well, 4 if you count the salt. The rest is up to you. I think simple toppings on fresh pasta are the best. You spent so much time kneading and rolling that you should want to show off that pasta!
I decided to highlight this time around with ravioli. A simple ricotta filling and a brown butter sauce. The only *extra* flavors is some fresh sage added to the brown butter sauce. It is the perfect compliment and oh so *autumnal*
For this recipe, I am not using fancy tools. It is just a surface and elbow grease using a rolling pin. I want to make fresh pasta approachable for anyone. Trust me, you do not need a pasta maker to have fresh pasta.
I hope you give it a shot, and if this is your first time making pasta, please don't be intimidated. Just prepare to get a little messy with the flour
