Another pasta making night!! Cornell held a ravioli night this time, with Anna Rita once again leading us all in making some amazing, delicious ravioli filled with ricotta and spinach with sauces ranging from a simple butter and sage to pumpkin and tuna. We all came with our hands ready at four pm to the lecture hall in the palazzo which was set up with tables with flour, eggs, rolling pins and machines that flatten the pasta. Anna Rita taught us all how to make the dough with one part eggs and one part refined flour. We all then helped roll out the dough and then spoon out the already made filling onto the sheets. Professor Morris’ daughter Madelyn once again helped enormously, this time accompanied by Photography teacher Liana Muccio’s daughter Alina; they both helped to cut the pasta. Once the pasta was made we sent it away for boiling, set the long table in the room with plates and napkins and chowed down on some yummy ravioli!
