Mushroom and Spinach Ravioli/Fettucine

i've been wanting to try and make my own ravioli for a while. i love fresh ravioli! but i don't have a pasta maker. a friend of mine suggested buying fresh pasta for lasagna and making ravioli with it. so on wednesday i tried it. i made the filling by sauteing chopped mushrooms, chopped spinach, and garlic in olive oil and then mixed it with marscarpone cheese and parmesan cheese. then i cut the sheets of pasta in squares and put a little bit of the filling in the middle and placed another square of pasta on the top. however i was unable to get the pasta to stick together. it was like the sheets of pasta were just too stiff. it just wasn't going to work. so i ended up cutting up the pasta into strips and cooking it and then serving the filling on top and drizzling the pasta with a little bit of olive oil. it ended up being really good! and a lot easier than stuffing all that ravioli. i would still like to try making ravioli again some time. i think my friend is goint to lend my her pasta machine. i let you know how it goes.

Hi Somer,
The trick to the Ravioli is to brush egg wash on the four edges of one square, fill it then pinch them closed. I picked that tid bit up from Emeril.
I love your recipes and can't wait to try them.

Love to Dan and the girls,
