Just wanted to spread the word – I’m going to San Francisco in Septmeber!   I’m meeting a friend there and we will be attending the BlogHer Food ’09. I’m hoping to meet some of my favoured foodie bloggers, learn new trick, tips and recipes, and explore San Fran!

On Saturday morning, I stopped into my 2nd favourite kitchen store in Bath (Maine) and picked up a ravioli press kit.  After much research and debate, I’m happy I went this this particular method.  Its fast and easy.  I just need to practice on getting the air out.

And so, for my first test run with this new ravioli press, I thought I’d use that can of crab I had in the pantry… only to realize it wasn’t crab!

Shrimp Ravioli

  • 1 cup whole milk ricotta
  • 1 can drained shrimp
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley

Drain shrimp well, and combine all ingredients.  I allowed the mixture to set for 30 mins in the fridge to allow the flavours to meld.

Using my new ravioli press, I made 12 ravioli’s at a time, putting about a tsp of shrimp filling into each ravioli.  After rolling and cutting, I lightly floured the ravioli and let them set for 30 mins to air dry.

For the sauce, I mixed 1 tbsp of cream with 4 tbsp of pesto and drizzled this over the cooked ravioli.  Great way to use up leftover cream!
