Hah..For those of you that thought something else .. Shame on you.. :lol2:

We made hand made ravioli for the first time ,,everything, even the Italian sausage was homegrown ,,somewhat.. ;-)
It was delicious and we ate, drank fine wine and reminisced about Steffie with mostly smiles and only a few tears..
Unfortunately my pasta technique needs a lot of work as they ended up towards the end looking more like perogies than ravioli.. :p
Still fab all the same.. Steff would have loved it.. :heart:

The pasta dough

The filling, ricotta ,provolone, Romano, parmesana asiago cheese and sauteed leek

If you consider this a problem - just call me - I know how to clean up food like that with no problem whatsoever!

Fine wine always adds to a really good meal and yes he has had a little practice as of late.. :lol2: 2 bottles of vino and a great dinner ,then put a prolapsed uterus in successfully at midnight last Valentines day.. We are very talented.. ;-) :help:

Looks like it was delicous. A reminder for everyone to enjoy life's simple pleasures; it doesn't get much better than a good meal prepared and shared with someone you love.
