On the board today are cavatelli’s. These are small pasta shells that have been referred to as “miniature hot dog buns” (Wikipedia definition). The word cavatelli means “little hollows”. This pasta is made with ricotta cheese and is an almost dumpling like consistency.
A few weeks ago Roger came up with a “hybrid” cavatelli. Some recipes use ricotta cheese, some do not. For our recipe we are using ricotta and some eggs as well. It is an easy recipe to make but requires a bit of time. I know you will love the end result!
3 cups flour
Dash olive oil
1 cup ricotta cheese
