Happy National Ravioli Day!
Encompassing a seemingly endless combination of cheese, vegetable and meat fillings, the pillowy pasta delicacies are a surprisingly achievable dish for home cooks. For helpful guidelines, check out Saveur's "Ravioli How-To," or eHow's instructions on how to make homemade ravioli, without the help of a machine.
Considering herself in an "Italian phase...," blogger La Tartine Gourmande created these elegant butternut squash ravioli bundles, topped with a buttery sage, orange and ginger dressing. Of the time-consuming task of creating her own ravioli from scratch, she has but one complaint: "How comes it takes two minutes to eat them when I obviously needed more than that to prepare them. Have you noticed how often this is the case with food?" We couldn't agree more -- but good food is worth the wait.
