Sweet pea ravioli

Y’all. I’m writing this post in the car because I have no time today. Straight from school to work but I have to share this with you! If you want pasta tonight and are adventurous enough to try your own then this is the recipe for you. Handmade ravioli filled with sweet peas, ricotta, Parmesan and fresh herbs tossed with a green pea Buerre blanc sauce. Served with a wild mushroom ragout (criminis, shanterelles, oyster mushrooms, and portobellos) with grilled asparagus. Will post recipe this afternoon!!
The pictures aren’t that great because I used my iPhone in class while we were waiting for chef to taste our dishes, it’s delicious though. I promise.
