I have been back in the kitchen lately. Experimenting and playing around.
My latest creation is sort of a twist on homemade pasta. I don’t really have the patience to make fresh pasta dough – so my solution is to pick up already made flat sheets at my local pasta shop. You can let your imagination run wild with fillings. I sauteed mushrooms, kale and fresh corn and then added an egg yolk to the center. I took the egg white and mixed with a little water and made a wash and then covered the bottom layer with another layer of pasta to make a large ravioli-like pocket. They didn’t take too long to cook (maybe 4-5 minutes) in boiling water. I wanted to make I didn’t overcook the yolk so that – as I cut into the pasta – the yolk would still be runny. A touch of browned butter on top before serving and you have a pretty simple meal.
Sometimes nothing hits the spot like bowl of pasta. Don’t you agree?
