I had no idea there was an actual season for making ravioli. What a pleasant surprise!

Please check out Marie’s recipe and process. I had to wipe the drool off my chin more than a few times as I read this.  Her Proud Italian Cook blog contains many wonderful recipes for authentic and contemporary Italian food.

My mother never had a pasta machine, nor did her mom, so all the rolling was done by hand. I’m all in favor having a machine to save time and strength, but the thick noodles they created had the most wonderful texture.

I think Christmas is the perfect time for ravioli- what do you think? After reading Marie’s post, you may agree that it is indeed Ravioli Season.

I had no idea there was an actual season for making ravioli. What a pleasant surprise! Apparently this is a tradition for many Italian American families. I need to ask Dahlia about this.

  1. I too was drooling as I read Marie’s post and recipe. I think Christmas is the perfect time for ravioli and all different specialty foods. When I lived in California it was tamales and in New York city is was Knish. Let’s just make the entire month of December a food fest from different cultures. I’m game although my waist will surely expand!

    • I love how so many cultures bring out their best recipes on Christmas- Easter too. Don’t get me started on my mother’s pizzagaina- Italian Ham Pie. It’s so rich that you can hear your arteries clogging. But oh so good! Everything in moderation…
