Homemade ravioli

Today I decided to try my hand at making homemade pasta. We don’t have a pasta machine or other special tools, and it was my first attempt, so I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect.

I used Ottolenghi’s lemon and goat’s cheese ravioli recipe, but I’m not a huge fan of tarragon so I made a sage brown butter sauce instead. Ottolenghi also assumes you have a pasta machine, so this recipe is light on (read: says nothing about) details like how thin the pasta should be, how large a sheet you should have, or even how many ravioli to expect. So … as you can imagine, or perhaps see in the photos, the result wasn’t perfect. The pasta ended up a bit on the thick side, especially on the edges (which I’d also make smaller next time). But all in all, tasty and a decent first try!
