I’ll be honest: I never liked fresh pasta. It just always tasted so off to me, which is a hard thing to describe, but that’s the truth. Pete is a huge fan of fresh pasta, so when my grandma got him a pasta maker last Christmas, I let out a little sigh. It meant unfavorable fresh pasta would be in our home.

And then Pete made it.

It was amazing.

All these high-end restaurants making fresh pasta not to my taste, but Pete’s recipe is so good. He makes it often, and I just love it. He uses the same dough recipe for spaghetti, lasagna noodles, and ravioli, too — and it’s amazing every time. Pete used it over the weekend to make ravioli stuffed with my favorite kale pesto. What a delicious dinner!

We currently have the new Softsoap Hand Wash Plus Lotion, in the aloe water & lime variant, in our kitchen. It’s perfect there. When you’re cooking, you are generally washing your hands a lot, and that really can make your hands dry. So having a soap that adds some lotion to soothe is great.

And this time of year, when winter is making your hands so dry, you definitely want to put lotion on them. This is a great way to do that without the greasiness that lotion can leave.

When your hands are clean, wrap your dough in plastic wrap and let it rest about 20 minutes.

Cut a chunk of dough and roll it through your pasta maker. Roll it until you reach your desired thickness, then cut the sheet in half.

Put a few dollops of kale pesto on one half of the dough. Add a dollop of ricotta, then, cover that with the second piece of dough. Using a ravioli cutter (which is amazing because it pinches it closed for you) cut the ravioli.
