Pear Ravioli

After the bustle of the holidays, I look forward to cozy made-from-scratch meals at home that are slightly lighter & fresh. Making homemade pasta is just one of the many things I love to do during the cold winter months. It requires nothing but staple ingredients, a rolling pin & a few minutes of time. The little effort invested yields incredible texture, flavor & that made-from-scratch satisfaction.
I will admit, I have a pasta roller attachment to expedite the process, but don’t be intimidated to just roll it out or substitute with wonton wrappers. This pear ravioli is packed full of so much flavor that I balance it with a subtle sauce, then garnish it with freshly grated parmesan & cracked pepper. It takes just 30 minutes from start to finish to make homemade pear ravioli!
