Last Saturday, I made plans with my friend Ruth to come over and show her how to make raviolis from scratch. So after forgetting almost half the stuff I was supposed to bring, I eventually made it to Ruth’s. We watched Entre les Murs, a French film about a high school teacher’s struggles to teach a class of mainly immigrant students. If you can find it, watch it, you won’t be disappointed.
We made a basic tomato pasta sauce, cheese and herb raviolis, fresh mushroom salad, and a greens salad. And there was flour all over the place. Her husband and another one of our friends were very impressed with our attempt.
