Homemade ravioli as a starter for Xmas lunch. Will be served with a simple tomato, basil and garlic sauce topped with freshly grated parmigiano.

to make it more interesting - add a little cream to your tomato sauce - and then some extra crushed garlic and a little crushed green chilli - that tastes amazing with any spinach and ricotta pasta pockets - you dont have to go overboard with the chilli - if you cant handle the heat then add just a little till you get the flavor ..... also if you cant handle the heat then remove the seeds and membrane before crushing - that will just give you the flavor with less heat then preserve in Olive Oil - for the guys who really cannot handle the chillis just add some of that olive oil from the preserved mixture  ;)

but your pasta looks great - i'm sure it was delicious as it was  :thumbs:

A tad late, I only saw this now. it looks delicious! By the way, I like the vino too, I call it Jan... he landed in the Cape in 1652, then planted the orchard and in 1659 his orchard produced its first grapes ready for winemaking. A very pleasant tasting wine blend indeed.  :thumbs:
