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
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.
