As you know by now, I love making homemade pasta & that doesn’t stop with the basics like spaghetti & fettuccine – I also enjoy making homemade ravioli. One of our favorites, pear ravioli, also happens to be on the lighter side, making it a great after the holiday addition to our menu rotation. You just need a few fresh ingredients to make a light & flavorful dinner.
