Ravioli with Gorgonzola Cream Cheese

Rainy Easter was something we did not expect…yes we did expect the sunny day instead of rainy and cold!! So, we found something to do together and for sure it should be something fun and delicious ^o^

We thought about making ravioli for our lunch, my husband asked me whether we have the entire ingredient we need or not. I suddenly asked him back that how comes we do not have? Maybe he forgot that we made a big shopping the day before Easter.

Having my husband in the kitchen with me makes my kitchen even smaller than before and I could not move around easily. Normally I do not allow him to be around in the kitchen, but this time I cannot deny that it’s such a nice time cooking together.

Pasta dough (I made quite a lot for 2 so, I kept some in the fridge for the next day)

400 gr. Semolina flour
3 eggs
Pinch of salt
Some water


200 gr. Ricotta cheese
150 gr. Spinach
150 gr. Shrimp
5 tbsp. Parmesan cheese
Salt & pepper

Gorgonzola cream cheese

2 tbsp. butter
2 tbsp. gorgonzola cheese
100 ml. cream
Salt & pepper

For pasta:

Whisk semolina flour in medium bowl and make a hole in the centre. Add eggs and stir with fork making movement in circle until mixture clumps together.

Add some salt and knead until dough is smooth, adding some water if dough is too dry.

Form dough into ball, cover and let rest for 30 minutes.

For filling:

Bring spinach to boil, squeeze all the water and cut into small pieces.
Melt butter in small skillet over medium heat. Add shrimps cut in to cubes till they cooked.
Mix together spinach, shrimps, ricotta, parmesan cheese and nutmeg. Season with salt and pepper.

For Gorgonzola cream cheese:

Melt butter and gorgonzola cheese together then pour cream and season with salt and pepper.

Cut pasta dough in pieces, cover with cloth to keep from drying out. I set pasta machine to no. 3 thin setting. Flatten 1 dough piece into rectangle. Run dough piece through machine. Fold in half crosswise and run through again. Continue to run through machine and dusting with flour as need to keep from sticking.

Place pasta sheet on lightly floured work surface, do not forget to cover with cloth to keep from drying. I used small cookies cutter to cut them out from pasta sheets. Place the filling in center of 1 dough round, fold dough over filling and forming half-moon and pressing to adhere.
Press edges with back of fork to seal tightly.Cook ravioli in boiling salted water until just tender and float. Drain and transfer ravioli to a bowl. Pour hot cream cheese over sprinkle with parmesan cheese.


Chocolate mascarpone cheesecake pot

As we did not go anywhere for easter holiday as both of us have a cold, so we just stay home, be relax by watching tv and pamper ourself by making something good and absolutely delicious!!

I found that we had mascarpone cheese in the fridge, it reminded me for the dessert that i have seen in my friend's blog, Pook dailydelicious Once i saw it, i told myself that i gotto to try to make it once because i love both cheese & chocolate.

So, I decided to make it and to be honest i do not fancy too much about dessert, just love to make it. But u know what once the first dip got into my mouth...oh...it's absolutely delicious ... perfect and i could not stop myself!! Now, it's already on my favourite dessert lists and for sure i will do it again and again!!!

Thank you so much Pook for sharing the wonderful recipe.


Strawberry roll

In this month, i got a good price for fresh strawberries in the supermarket near my house. So, i kept buying them although i did not have any idea for the cakes or the sweets i want to do with them.

Frankly speaking, in the past week i made a lot of rolls and shortcakes with these nice and sweet strawberries. I still remember how my husband reacted when he came back home and saw those cakes in the fridge!! Oh my god!!... againnnnnnnn!!!!

Anyway, i decided to make the last roll yesterday and i told myself that my husband won't see them again for a very long time!! Not only my husband gets bored for eating them .... i feel bored to do it as well and wanna make something different.

Raspberry meringe kiss

Ho avuto questa ricetta dalla mia amica nella classe, Kate. Ho provato a fare in Lunedì e le ho portato ai miei amici, mi hanno detto che sono buoni.

Grazie mille Kate per darmi questa meravigliosa ricetta.


Gelato con biscotti

Sono due volte che faccio questo gelato e a noi piace molto.


Le palle di nocciola

Questo biscotto è facile da fare e ci vuole poco tempo specialmente per qualcuno che ha nocciole o mandorle già grattugiate (meglio se molto fini).

Devo dire che questi biscotti sono davvero profumati e buoni.
