Beef ravioli with tomato sauce


Category : , ,

Mid-week cooking is back! Although it nearly wasn't as I was quite tired from running the household with my parents away for 4 weeks. The lucky ones are holidaying in Europe whilst I look after the house and not try to burn it down! Last time they left me the freezer blew up and I was left with discarding smelly seafood, good meat and yummy dumplings! Hoping that doesn't happen again!

I decided to try this recipe from the taste website.
Mum had frozen some bolognaise sauce for me so that made my life a whole lot easier. I couldn't find any gowgee wrappers, but I found dim sim wrappers and they tasted just like ravioli pasta should! The only problem is they came in a square shape and I wanted circles, so I got out the scone cutter and worked my magic.

My boyfriend who is Italian and has been eating pasta since he came out of the womb said it was delicious! I think the key to make this recipe a success is to have a good bolognaise sauce.

They weren't too hard to make, I'm glad I wasn't going to go with my original plan and get Latina raviolis, because these tasted sooooooo good!

I highly recommend you try these!!
