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
