Ravioli, Ravioli, Ravioli...

Some years ago, when I was living in Europe, I came to like making and eating "Ravioli" -- from out of a can, or made from scratch! It was pasta made "wonderful'a"! I like Ravioli! My kids like Ravioli! We were crazy about Ravioli! We liked making Ravioli ..."ra-ra-ra-Ravioli"! We're probably making Ravioli right now! We're making meat Ravioli, cheese Ravioli (and no Italian "Mama mia" is gonna show us how to make Ravioli)! Making Ravioli is a colorful addition to one's life, loves, and living. We even reminisce about eating Ravioli. My first Ravioli experience was exquisite! I suppose when thinking about it, making Ravioli is a learning experience similar to any. Just like reading a manual. There are steps which you need to follow but no advice you need to take. I knew about a few things. The dough needs to be nice and elastic, it needs to be very thin, and what else? Of course the pasta will be cooked al dente. And oh yes, and I learned this the hard way... "La Femme Nikita", played by Anne Parillaud (French film, directed by: Luc Besson, 1990) loved Ravioli! When do we get to go out to eat... Ravioli ?
