Spinach Ravioli with Grilled Asparagus, Shaved Parmesan and Rosemary Flowers
Another pasta dish... Ravioli is fun to make because you can stuff it with so many different ingredients. We chose spinach and three different cheeses (ricotta, mozzarella and Parmesan) for this one. We tossed some asparagus with our standard marinade (sea salt, garlic, pepper corns, rosemary and olive oil - all bashed together in a mortar and pestle) and then grilled them on the barbecue for 3-4 minutes. The rosemary bushes that we have are in bloom right now so I had the girls strip a handful of the flowers and sprinkle them over the top of the pasta for color. We added some shaved Parmesan and a good drizzle of a peppery olive oil and we were done. Another favorite of the kids.
