This morning Summer and I stayed home from church because she is a little sick. I made her breakfast in bed with heart pancakes. That cheered her up quite a bit. Sometimes it is not necessarily restful day of getting better with a four year old because they don't really rest.
For dinner I decided to try making home made pink heart shaped ravioli for dinner. I thought it was good. Summer even helped me pinch the edges closed.

It was fun to make, and now I know I can make ravioli with whatever kind of filling I want.
So, if you want to try it out here is the recipe I used for the dough, and my own combination for the filling.
Ravioli From Scratch
1 lb ground turkey
1 large handful of fresh spinach chopped
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
1-2 diced roma tomatoes
1 cup fine grated italian style cheese blend
1 tsp Herbs de Province (Italian seasoning will work fine)
1 tsp Garlic salt
- 3 cups flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup water
First brown the ground turkey, garlic salt, and Herbs de Province. Add chopped spinach and basil. Cook another 5 minutes or until spinach has wilted up. Let cool.
After the meat mixture is cooled add the grated cheese, and diced tomatoes. Set aside and make your ravioli dough.
After I made my filling I followed the steps below.
MAKING THE RAVIOLI DOUGH: Sift flour and salt together.
