Ex-Navy cookie? Didn't know that! You'd love our kitchen. It's just about galley proportions.

You could use anything for the ravioli filling. Squash just happened to be what I had on paw tonight.

I think our range is type Crapola. Cheap little electric unit that, honestly, should be replaced.

But our kitchen proportions are galley-like. About ten feet long yet so narrow you have to squeeze a bit to pass someone. :P And you can always do with more counter space!

Re: recipe?

On the community post I added the recipe (brief version) for the ravioli dough.

The filling was pretty simple. Boil the squash until tender, then puree in a food processor with mushrooms and herbs (I used sage and a little dill; parsley would work well). Thicken with a little flour if it's too watery (my filling came out watery; the texture wasn't what I was hoping for because the squash released too much moisture).

That's honestly all there was to it! The recipe for the ravioli is pretty simple, just a bit time consuming.

Lovely presentation.

And gawd, how I love bacon.

Thank you.

Yes, bacon is one of the great sources of yumminess. This dinner had bacon, butter (just a dab), and garlic in it, so you know it had to be good. :)

Mmm, I need to get to Whole Foods soon so I can get some naturally smoked bacon. Not only does it taste really good but it doesn't have sodium nitrate in is so I'm not allergic to it.

I used to have more of a problem with nitrates than I do now. (Migraine triggers... wheee.) So, as long as I don't overdo it, bacon is okay.
