Cookbook Challenge Recipes #4, 5, 6 – Bolognese Ravioli & Tear and Share Garlic Buns

Yesterday, I got 3 more recipes down.  My family came to visit from out of town and I invited them to be my guinea pigs.  These recipes were very time consuming, but what else do you have to do on a Sunday afternoon?!  You make garlic bread and homemade ravioli from scratch!

Recipe #4 – Royal Pasta Dough

Recipe #5 – Bolognese Ravioli

Recipe #6 – Tear & Share Garlic Bread

BOLOGNESE RAVIOLI

The pasta dough, Pomodoro sauce and Bolognese filling was simple enough, what took time was the rolling of the dough and assembling the ravioli.  Surprisingly enough, I remembered the skills I learned in Rome when I took the cooking class for my birthday.  Even the man helped out!

*Note to self – you can never too much flour!  Some of my raviolis were sticking to my counter and to the cookie sheet.

Overall result – Everyone LOVED the ravioli!

TEAR & SHARE GARLIC BREAD

I’ve never made bread from scratch before, therefore I was a little worried about how this recipe would turn out.  This recipe took a good 4 hours, with letting the dough rise twice, assembly and bake time.

My mom kept telling me how good my buns were – They really did just peel apart!  I really liked the concept of putting bread crumbs at the bottom of the pan to prevent the buns from sticking.

Overall result – I will be making this recipe again, maybe next time I’ll add some cheese and add garlic inside the dough.
