Welcome to my first travel diary!
I’m a Southern Belle through and through but I love to travel and I can’t wait to share with you this video of the Ravioli and Meatballs Cooking Experience I just had in Rome, Italy!
I booked the Eat and Walk Italy cooking class through Viator and it was super easy to find a class that fit our sight-seeing schedule whilst in Rome. Just follow this link: https://www.viator.com/tours/Rome/Coo...
Caterina, our host was exceptional and I can not recommend the experience enough. Even for a “non-cook” like me, I found the class to be informative and enjoyable. I felt like a professional chef after I was all done!
Below, I’ve shared her recipe!
Pasta, 1 person
100 grams of 00 flour
1 medium egg
1 pinch of salt
Put the flour in the shape of a pyramid and make a hole in the centre, add a pinch of salt and put the egg in the middle, begin to work the egg with a fork and add the flour slowly, once the ingredients are blended, knead the dough for 5 minutes.
Filling: Ricotta cheese, Parmesan, spinach, salt and pepper
Meatballs 4/6 :
400 grams of beef or veal
40 grams of Parmesan cheese
40 grams of breadcrumbs
4 slices of pancarré or 2 entire slices of bread soaked for 5 minutes in water or milk.
Tomato sauce in “Pizzaiola” style:
250 ml of tomato sauce
250 ml of water
3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
Cook the garlic with extra virgin olive oil and add tomato sauce. Use the same quantity of tomato and water (e.g. if you use 1 bottle of water you will use 1 bottle of tomato sauce) then add salt and oregano. Put meatballs in the sauce and continue cooking for 40/50 minutes, add some water if you reduce the sauce too much.
