    The Creative Steps groups have been cooking up a storm in Gallery 966.

    We have been making tomato and basil ravioli. It’s the first time we’ve been able to eat one of our crafty projects and hope it’s not the last – the results were delicious!

    First we made our own pasta with flour, eggs, oil and water. Then made a sauce with fresh tomatos, basil, onion and garlic. After rolling out the pasta and cutting it into pasta shapes, we filled these with the fresh and tasty sauce. We took this home to cook up and eat with any of the sauce that didn’t fit in the parcels.

    It was great to be reminded that we can use our creative skills in the kitchen too!

      

    Below is the recipe if you’d like to try at home!
