My Life Is Really, Really Rough. You Should Weep For Me.

Mr. Man and his god mother (she of Lamb Cake fame) made spring ravioli. 
This is the second time Mr. Man and his god mother have used Mr. Man's electric pasta maker. There was so much love in the room, you could almost taste it.  I made a filling - a modified version of Smitten Kitchen's adapted Gourmet Magazine recipe.






















I used canned artichokes, because we couldn't find frozen. And I added blanched and well drained spinach for a little more substance. I may also have increased the amount of cheese. They taste amazing. But nothing is as amazing as the memory of time spent together. We love you Rose Luchini!

  1. This statement..."nothing is as amazing as the memory of time spent together"...is one I TOTALLY agree with!! It doesn't matter what you're making, or eating, or if you're doing neither! :-) {Great photos too, by the way!}

  5. Sounds yummy and fun! Trader Joe's in Amherst is where I get my frozen artichoke hearts. They're hard to find at the regular supermarket. I can't stand the vinegar taste of canned ones.

  7. I would totally give up my low carb diet for some of those. I mean, love is great and all that, but homemade pasta...
