Batch Cooking: Homemade Ravioli

Batch Cooking: Homemade Ravioli

Homemade ravioli is somewhat time consuming, but so much fun to make.  It is nice to have ravioli in the freezer for quick meals topped with a simple sauce, with sauteed vegetables, in soups, or breaded and pan-fried.  I first learned how to make ravioli from scratch when I took a catering class in high … Continue reading
