New habit: every weekend I present you a new recipe with wild garlic! Ok ok, the season will soon be over, but still I have another great recipe today and maybe next weekend, too, since I bought another bunch wild garlic yesterday. Oops!

But I think 1 bunch of wild garlic per week in season is a good dose to enjoy it without getting sick of it too fast. As we had another holiday last week, I decided to make something special and these ravioli were on my to-do-list for some time. Quite perfect for the weekend or a day off.

Wild Garlic Ravioli with Lemon Butter

But together and using a Ravioli Board they were quickly made. Although I am not really satisfied with the ravioli board, because it’s actually quite unmanageable to separate the ravioli with the attached mini rolling pin. So I skip that part and just use my pastry wheel, which is quicker, anyway. But every time I face this fact again, I’m getting a bit annoyed over it. But on the positive side you get 12 equal ravioli in little time.

The wild garlic really shines in the warm filling and the lemon butter fits very well without being overwhelming. As I didn’t thought of buying a tube of ricotta the day before, I just made my own! You only have to plan in 1,5 hours for that. But you only need ingredients you’ve mostly at home and while the pasta dough rests, the ricotta can be drained. Perfect time management!
