My version uses a ramekin to hold a stack of saucy deliciousness between layers of handmade pasta. Don't let the pasta worry you, it's easier than it should be and so much nicer than the dried stuff.
Step 1: Ingredients
1 cup flour
1/2 tsp salt
1-2 tbsp water
The fillings are a place to express creativity and/or use up some leftovers. My fillings were...
1 package ricotta (about 14 ounces)
1-2 cups shredded mozzarella
1-2 cups fresh spinach - I used some fresh leftover spinach that I had washed, dried and frozen in a freezer bag - about 2 cups that I diced, feel free to substitute pre-packaged frozen
Italian Sausage - browned and crumbled
Sliced Mozzarella for the top
The ramekins I used hold about 10 ounces.
