    Ravioli with Ricotta, Parmesan & Mozzarella Cheese

    (36)
    There’s nothing so delicious as fresh ravioli pasta, and creating it yourself. It’s is easier than you might think. Learn how to make the perfect ravioli pasta dough and flavorful three cheese filling. Other filling possibilities will be explored. You will then transform the ravioli pasta dough into beautiful ravioli. Next, you’ll pair your handcrafted pasta with a delicious burnt butter and sage sauce. No experience is required! We provide all the equipment and ingredients, which are easy to find at local markets if you don’t already have them in your home kitchen. Our events are casual and meant to be fun and instructive, not hardcore. This class is designed to be just as fun for the cooking enthusiast who wants to be a part of every step as it is for the first-timer who’s happier observing and assisting (or taste testing). You will work with other students in groups of 2-4.
