Recipe: Homemade Ravioli (Cheese, Pea, and Mint)

I’ve had “make ravioli” on my to do list for about 8 years and I finally did it and guess what: it was great! It probably would have been a lot easier with a pasta sheeter but doing the whole process by hand was actually not hard or that time consuming. It’s the type of recipe that you struggle with the first time but I feel like you’d get exceptionally better after 3-4 times. This is a recipe you can use to impress EVERYONE but also it was just very fresh tasting, cheap, delicious, and worth a try.
