Holiday Recipe

We're having a little holiday dinner tonight at home. Nothing special, just something to get into the spirit of the season. And, actually, this isn't a recipe so much as a technique.

We're gonna make some pasta, roll it out into sheets for ravioli and use a basic filling like sausage, ricotta and chard. Chard is green and sausage was reddish at one point and ricotta looks like a snowbank, so I suppose it hits all three parts of the Christmas color wheel.

And then we will - are you ready for it? - use cookie cutters to cut the raviolis into Christmas shapes! Oh dear! Maybe a little brown butter and sage to finish it off and we are having a holiday meal!

This tree-shaped ravioli is delicious! Oh look! Candy cane shaped ravioli! I got a stocking one!

Fa la la la la la la la la!
