That old ravioli cutter has a lot of miles on it! It belonged to your Great-Grandmother and she used it all the time. I'm sure she (and grandma and dad) would not approve of the store-bought pasta and sauce, but dinner was very good anyway. I did make the meatballs from scratch....glad you liked them!


Sounds like a good time was had by all on Christmas! Any chance of getting Mumma's meatball recipe?

Wow, Looking at that ravioli cutter brought back many happy memories. How I miss “the good old days” with everyone around the table. Grandma would not mind that you used “store bought” raviolis, she would just be happy that you continued the tradition….. I have some pictures of the "padella" out on the deck remind me to show them to you next time you are over.

Hi, Mumma. The meatballs were yummy. :-)

Hi, Lorraine. I think the secret to Mumma's meatballs is Progresso Italian-flavored breadcrumbs. I eat the stuff straight from the canister.

Hi, Auntie. I'd love to see the pics. :-)

Hi, Jennifer. Thanks for writing in! Ah, yes. There are always a few stubborn ravs that refuse to stay closed in the boiling water. I always end up with a few loose tops and bottoms and "liberated" ricotta filling in the sauce. Using a fork to seal the edges is a good idea. I'll have to try that!
