Open-faced Ravioli

Being a big fan of open-faced sandwiches (or Smørrebrød), I had to try it with pasta too. After all, the fillings for ravioli are interesting as the pasta!

So, first off, do try to make your own pasta. Its easy, quick and tastes so much better than store bought.

Preheat the oven to 180 deg C.

Roll the pasta out as thin as possible, and then cut into small squares or circles, or I guess any shape should be fine.

Now boil the pasta in salted water until al dente.

Arrange the pasta in one layer on a baking tray. Top with any ingredients that you fancy! Let your imagination go wild. Here I used four kinds:

a. Spinach and Feta Cheese
b. Caramelised Onions
c. Tomatoes and Mozzarella
d. Chicken Sausage.

You could really use whatever is on hand. This is a kitchen sink sort of dish. I've also made them later with Corn and Cheese, and Mushrooms and Cheese. Everything tastes great. Next time, pesto...

Now bake in the oven until cheese is melted, about 8 minutes. Remove and serve warm.

Its a mix between a pizza and a ravioli and a lasagna. Its really quite easy and delicious.

Enjoy. Let me know what imaginative toppings you end up using.
