Thursday is my night to cook dinner. Usually this means I heat up the frozen pizza (& take fifteen minutes to make a pizza for me & mom), make breakfast for dinner, or some other simple & easy thing.
Tonight was a slight exception. There was a package of frozen ravioli in the freezer, waiting to be cooked. I pulled it out for the rest of my family, but decided to make gluten free ravioli for me & mom.
I found a fairly simple sounding recipe online along with a simple filling recipe and set to work. There's a reason I italicized sounding in the previous sentence.
First off, the dough was way too sticky. I tried adding more flour but it refused to cooperate.
Second, when I tasted the dough it tasted overpoweringly of olive oil. So, I added some rosemary to cover the taste of the oil.
A trip to the store, a horrendously messy counter, and forty five minutes later I had five mega gluten free ravioli ready to be cooked.
They tasted alright--a little thick--and a little bit too much oil still (even though I followed the recipe!)--but alright. I don't think I'll be making them again....at least not for a long while.
I'm going to stick to easy recipes that do not require more than half an hour of prep for the time being.
