This post concludes the three-part post on the Williams-Sonoma, pasta, ravioli, and ricotta cheese demonstration that took place on Aug. 12th.

Below is the ricotta recipe that was demonstrated, hung to drain, and then used to demonstrate how to make homemade ricotta ravioli using the KitchenAid and its pasta attachments.

The cheese came out extremely creamy, which enabled us to make some absolutely delicious ravioli. Tossed in a sage and butter sauce and garnished with toasted pine nuts, we made ourselves a real winner.


This is an extremely  fun thing to make especially for “Ricotta Cheese Lovers!”

Have fun and enjoy!


This cheese is extremely versatile, and as we all know, can be used for savory dishes as well as sweet dishes.
