Pasta Day!

My friend Jen and I set aside a Sunday afternoon to attempt to make homemade pasta.  I recently purchased an old-fashioned pasta maker because I am too cheap to invest in the version that attaches to your Kitchen Aid Stand Up Mixer, which was definitely a mistake and made the process much more difficult than it should have been.

We chose three recipes to try, a pumpkin ravioli with a butter sage sauce, a spinach ricotta ravioli, and a simple pasta with peas, asparagus and pesto.  It was quite the feast! I am not going to post the actual pasta recipes, because we want to work on perfecting them first.  But the cocktails were AMAZING!

1 part gin
2 parts champagne
Fresh lime juice
Fresh mint leaves
