As a 17-yo, I find myself making "simple" meals... in other words, I live by packaged foods. After a sudden urge, I had the taste for some fresh pasta. I searched through the millions of websites aimlessly until I found this one, that had been rated 4 1/2 stars? It must be good. Simple, quick and BAM... fresh pasta? I'll give it a try.
I followed the directions, with the additions of 1 tsp of olive oil, and less salt (helpful tips from the other reviewers), then I kneaded it for at least 7 minutes until it was smooth; put the dough into a ziplock bag, left to sit for 90 minutes.
While my dough was relaxing, I made a shockingly wonderful carrot, garlic & feta filling, put that into a ziplock, and popped it into the fridge. As my dough, and filling relaxed.... I opened up a can of tomatoes, and simmered on low.
90 painful minutes later, I rolled out the dough easily, shaped little ovals... stacked two on each other, closed the edges (leaving just a peak open) and filled them with the carrot filling then brushed a little bit of olive oil on top and closed them tightly; boiled for about 5 minutes or until they floated.
As the ravioli finished cooking, I melted some butter, parsley, and garlic in a large skillet, once melted and bubbly, I dropped the ravioli into the butter and cooked for about 4 minutes.
MY MY MY... This may be the best ravioli I've ever had! The dough was perfectly cooked and most importantly, fresh. Served under the tomatoes, It was wonderful.
