If you follow Linda and I, you know I love to make homemade pastas. Making ravioli is a little work, but making one Raviolo is less… Adding an egg is an easy way to enhance any sauce. If you don’t want to make your own pasta you can always use a large won-ton wrapper.
I was watching a travel show about Asian dumplings when I had an epiphany… Make tortellini stuffed with the shrimp and serve it with my scampi sauce!!! Well you know when you think it, you have to make it. For lunch today my Hubby and I were in heaven with this rendition of this classic […]
