Yesterday was a cooking day for me. I made butternut squash for the family, pasta, bread, chocolate chip cookies, green beans for the baby . . . I made so much that some of the cooking spilled into today.
Today, I made a nutritious filling for homemade ravioli. It’s awesome — adding a hearty dose of spinach packs a good health punch to this ravioli filling. I made my dough from scratch, but if you prefer you can use wonton wrappers to form the raviolis.
