The Store Brand: Rising Moon Organics - Basil, Asiago, and Pine Nut Pesto Ravioli (couldn't they really just call these asiago and pesto...)
1 large sweet potato
1/4 cup coconut milk
1 adobe pepper in sauce
I baked the sweet potatoes (I used 3 small ones, and it was way too much filling) at 375º for ~30 mins, then peeled them. Put in the food processor with everything else and puree.
Turn these into this ---->
Ravioli Dough (adapted from foodnetwork.com):
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp salt
2 tbsp evoo
- Cut the ball of dough in 1/2, and press the dough into a rectangle and roll it through a pasta machine, 2 or 3 times, at widest setting. Reduce the setting and crank the dough through again, 2 or 3 times.
- Dust the counter and sheet of dough with flour, lay out the long sheet of pasta, and brush the top surface with a beaten egg white, which acts as a glue.
- Fold the other 1/2 over the filling like a blanket.
So the cost? So even though the cost worked out the same, mine were about twice the size, and I could easily have made a LOT more out of that recipe. So in reality, I'd say mine cost half as much as the store bought version.
