Fresh Ravioli Night – Simple simple simple

 

Fresh Ravioli Night

 

This recipe is so very simple.  First –  go to your local Italian Market, (like in Saint Louis, that would be “The Hill”)     and                        2)  purchase the freshest pasta you can possibly find.
Every Wednesday and Friday in Cassis there is a huge market.  The Italian guy is standing happily  with his fresh pasta from Italy.  I don’t know how he does it, but he’s always there (one year now I’ve seen him every wed and friday, ) and his home-made pastas and ravioli’s are incredibly deletable – like I’ve never tasted.  After purchasing your ravioli,  you really  can’t do much wrong with it (except over boiling it).  We put it in the water for only 5 minutes, or less,  and it’s done.

 

Sometimes we put crème fraîche in it, or tiny cut veggies on the top.  Last night it was just sautéed matchstick carrots, shallots in bit of butter with herbs d’Provence.  Stirred some crème fraîche in the veggies and topped the steaming pasta.  It was absolutely PERFECT.

Here’s my friend Sandrine with an “German actor friend” ooooh la la, and here is our pasta dish.  No, only Sandrine enjoyed the pasta with me and David.  The actor was not invited.  hmmmmmmm.
