Spinach and Ricotta Ravioli with Tomato Cream Sauce

After discovering how to make fresh pasta, I knew one of the first things I wanted to do was make ravioli. I have always loved vegetarian ravioli, especially with cheese or spinach and cheese fillings. This recipe is pretty easy to make and if you don't want to both making the pasta yourself, you could buy fresh pasta of use wonton wrappers.

I don't have the proper kitchen equipment to make perfect ravioli so I had to hand-form all the pieces, which became pretty time consuming. This would be much easier (and prettier) with a ravioli mold. When making the filling, taste if before filling the ravioli to make sure the salt and pepper amounts are to your liking.

Spelt Buiscuits

With the cold weather comes my love for baking. Since I've been having lots of soup lately, I enjoy having a good biscuit to go along with it. Since I still had some spelt flour hanging out in my pantry, I decided to try making these biscuits and was happily surprised. Though I still prefer my Flaky Cheese Biscuits, these are really easy to make a nice change to my usual all-purpose flour biscuits.

I made these plain, but you could easily add some herbs to the dough or some grated cheese to add some more flavor. These biscuits are best on the first day they are baked, but will still be alright the next day. You can easily freeze leftover biscuits if you need to.
