Food Network Friday: Ravioli Caprese

It's Saturday but I saw it and copied it Friday. That's all that counts!
It's from Giada. Her pasta almost always has eggs in it but this week she did a really veganizeable dish. Her pasta consists of flour and hot water- easy enough.

Sub vegan ricotta (I like pressed tofu, vegenaise, Italian seasoning, olive oil in food processor) and vegan chik'n strips sauteed and also processed in food processor. The rest is vegan anyway. We really liked it, but I am in love with ravioli so it was an easy sell. I love the fresh basil and lemon zest. Try it! I like to freeze ravioli for a quick and yummy meal. Don't forget- use a pepper grinder! It's the best easy thing you can change about your cooking.

That looks really delicious. I tend to not like Giada when she's on the Today show because her meals seem so meat-centric, but maybe I need to give her another try.

That looks amazing!! I'm way too lazy to make my own pasta, so color me impressed.

I've never made my own ravioli; for some reason it's always seemed intimidating. But I this post reminds me of how much I really, really want to...as soon as things calm down a bit I'm going to be brave and give it a try!

For you non pasta makers- I have a pasta roller, but I actually did this with a rolling pin. Just call them "rustic" when they are wonky :)
