Nana's Homemade Cavatelli
I use a cavatelli machine (see Find It Fast) to make this family favorite. Different brands of ricotta have different consistencies and moisture levels. Drain the ricotta for several hours or overnight to remove excess moisture. Cook 5 to 8 minutes, to taste--Nana liked her cavatelli fairly soft in texture. Prep: 1 hour, Cook: 5 to 8 minutes.
