Ravioli and Meatballs for Christmas Eve Dinner
This was our third year in a row making an Italian feast for Christmas Eve dinner, and we decided to pull it back a notch this time. It seemed that we'd always over-done the process, making too much food, and making it all just barely ok. So this year we made less, but we made it well...
As usual, we started with our own dough for the pasta, and made up a simple cheese filling for some ravioli. We also pulled out our amazing meatball recipe to pair with the pasta, and we ended up having a fabulous dinner this year of fresh ravioli, meatballs and ciabatta bread.
And, as always, we finished up the night with a glass of chocolate tequila and Bad Santa. Such an odd little tradition, but I love it!
