At some point each day I find myself searching google images. For the most part I get what I am looking for but as I scroll down a bit I get things that totally don't fit the key word. I don't remember what I was searching for in this instance but I happened upon a blueberry pasta (linguini I think) recipe with some sort of fruity sauce poured over the top. It looked and sounded delicious.

I love ravioli so I thought stuffing it with a sweet lemon and ricotta filling would be great twist on the recipe I saw - and since I have a ravioli pan screaming to be used again I came up with these tasty little sweet ravioli puffs.

Blueberry Puree
3/4 c. frozen blueberries
2 T. sugar
Juice of 1 lemon
pinch - lemon zest
1/4 c. water

In a medium sauce pan add all ingredients and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Keep cooking until blueberries are soft. Transfer mixture to an immersion blender measuring cup. If you don't have an immersion blender use a regular blender. Blend. You will get about 3/4 cup puree. Divide into two measurements of 1/4 cup and 1/2 cup. Set aside.

1 c. all-purpose flour
1/2 c. blueberry puree
2 T. olive oil

In a medium mixing bowl add flour and make a well in the center. Add olive oil and puree and mix to combine. When mixture comes together you can turn it out onto a lightly floured work surface and knead until smooth. Wrap in a warm damp cloth and let sit about 15-20 minutes.

guess what! i made these last night, though mine were not as pretty, due to lack of ravioli pan, they were delicious! went over really well, even with my picky 3 year old. When I told my baby brother (24 yr old) what was for postre, he said, "hmm...that sounds fancy..." when he finally got to eat some he said, "that was fancy and delicious" he wanted to take the leftovers, but we are having them with breakfast this morning. you totally deserved to be a pasta contest winner!

These look super amazing! Are they more like a dessert than a dinner?
