As with so many of our recipes I am re-posting this in the “recipe” format for you. If you haven’t tried these yet maybe now is the time!!
Today we are making 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.
Roger’s been at it again…
Roger has come 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!
I am including a few more pictures here so you can see the process…Please let us know if you give them a try and send us some pictures!!
We used our special “liquid gold” sauce for these, but our Roasted Tomato Sauce would be another delicious one to try! And it is so easy you can pop tomatoes in the oven to roast while you are making the pasta and then put in the food processor while the pasta is cooking and voila, dinner is served! If you want some meat with it, you can have some meatballs or sausage ready to go. Salad and Bread always the perfect sides!
I have included a few links here for some of the kitchen equipment we use when we make these. We love our “dough scraper”, pictured below.
