Spring has sprung, well…almost. Just as the grass turned to green & new leaves were budding on the trees, a cold front came through yesterday & it snowed. Still, I wanted to eat like it was spring. In spring, I’m craving light, flavorful salads & pastas without the heavy meat or cream sauces. I decided to adapt one of my favorite salad recipes, along with one of my favorite pasta recipes, to create a light & springy ravioli recipe. We all had seconds! Thank heavens it was also calorie friendly*!

I decided it’s time. I’m no longer breastfeeding & my little Isla babe is turning one next week. The diet is on! After being pregnant/breastfeeding most of the last 3 years, I’m trying to consider this more of a lifestyle change than diet. It’s time to cure that sweet tooth! I have always had a love for pasta & am going to embrace it, but adapt it. This recipe tastes anything but light. Just look at those little pillows of happiness.

I enjoy the process of making homemade ravioli, but if you don’t, try it inside out! Just toss stuffing ingredients with hot pasta.

You can also make ravioli using wonton wrappers!
