Delicious Saturday Evening Meal

June 5, 2010 at 7:45 pm 3 comments

Well, here we are – only one day left and there is still lots of food left. It is a rare Saturday evening in the household of Tim & Leah in that we are both home to enjoy it. Tim put his culinary skills to use today with this meal (even the title is a mouthful): homemade ravioli stuffed with pureed plantain and mushroom with a roasted tomato and zucchini sauce. Ooooh boy, was it ever good!

I’ll go through how to make it relatively step by step – we’re still new at this whole food blogging thing, so we did forget a few steps.

We boiled and pureed plantains,

sauteed mushrooms in margarine and salt,

mixed the two together to make a savoury-yet-sweet filling (with lots leftover for tomorrow),

made pasta (the making of the pasta dough is not pictured),

put tops on the ravioli and sealed them shut,

used a fork to edge them,

and made enough for the two of us.

While Tim was making these, a can of whole tomatoes, half a can of tomato sauce, half a yellow pepper and two sliced zucchinis were slowly roasting (for about an hour) in the oven with salt, pepper and oregano (our third spice).

And the finished product:

It was a nice, light meal to eat on the patio while we enjoyed the festivities of the Underwear Affair race as it ran past our house.

    […] I can’t help but wonder if it’s possible to overdose on plantains. Yesterday it was plantains for dinner, plantains for dessert (keep reading for details!) and today I am going to try a baked plantain and […]
