Cheese and Pasta

In honor of our upcoming trip to Italy this summer (and the fact that I have the day off of work), I am going to attempt to make homemade ricotta cheese tomorrow and then use it as stuffing in homemade ravioli.  I'm a little nervous, but so excited!

The ricotta cheese recipe I'll be using is one from David Lebovitz.  Pretty simple and seems fail-proof, I just need to run out and buy some cheesecloth in the morning. 

The jury is still out on which pasta recipe to follow - most seem pretty similar.  The only thing is that I don't have a pasta roller, so I'll be rolling all of it out myself.

Pictures and updates to follow soon...
