I have received some very lovely emails asking me to post pictures of the patterned pasta I made last year. Here in this post I am re-publishing pictures of the Mezza Luna ravioli Ahlia and I made over a year ago using calendula, and nasturtium flower petals, parsley and nettle leaves.
Getting more and more creative, with frequent visits to the garden to source flowers and petals.
A mixture of textures and colour.
Nettle leaf detail.
Petal decoration detail.
Ahlia really enjoys the process. It was she that introduced the extra Art.
The pasta sheets are passed through the varying sizes of the roller until quite thin.
Placing individual petals in the shape of a flower.
Nettles are added and baked pumpkin mash is used as the filling.
The red streaks are created by mixing nasturtium petals in the dough during the kneading phase.
