Well, happy valentine's day everyone! I was a little bummed out that Feb. 14 landed on a Monday, but it's given us the excuse to celebrate all weekend long. Saturday was massages and home cooking/baking and Sunday was "Pasta in Casa!" class at Hip Cooks in West LA. We got a gift card from Brian's sister last April, for our wedding and have finally put it to some good use! On the menu we had a Roasted butternut squash ravioli with sage butter (both Brian and my favorite, not pictured), then a Dill fettucine, salmon cream & vodka sauce. Making the dill fettucini sounded a lot more complicated, but it was basically the same pasta dough, with a little dill added to it The pasta itself was so pretty, here it is being put into the pasta machine.
It was so much fun!
We all had turns putting the pasta through the machine, here's Brian having a go at it.
And it came out so delicious. Definitely our second favorite pasta of the day.
The next pasta we made was called, Caramelle with mint, ricotta & lemon.
And finally we made a Portobello mushroom & spinach rotollo, red pepper tomato sauce.
Ugh, it was all very delicious. It was all so, so, so good.
The people joining us in class were all so nice and made the whole class a lot more fun and lively. Brian and I are already planning our next date over some Hip Cooks classes. Yay!
