"This is my second order for your oregano and I would like to say that it is the "BEST" I have ever used. It is better, much better, than my own home grown oregano. I want to thank you people for a superior product that I absolutely love and so do the friends I share it with...God Bless"   Charles W.,  Plainville, Connecticut

Asparagus and Ricotta Ravioli with Green Pea Sauce
(Ravioli di Asparagi e Ricotta con Salsa di Piselli)

1 cup shelled fresh or frozen green peas
1 cup water
1 tablespoon chopped green onion
1/2 teaspoon salt

1 lb slender asparagus
3/4 cup fresh whole-milk ricotta cheese (6 ounces)
1 teaspoon minced fresh mint
1 large egg

Fresh Egg Pasta

Extra-virgin olive oil

Bring first 4 ingredients to a boil in small saucepan.

Cook uncovered until peas are just tender, about 3 minutes.

Cool slightly.

Transfer mixture to blender; puree until smooth (sauce will be thin).

Season with salt and pepper.

Cut top 3 inches off asparagus; cut into 1/2-inch lengths.

Cook in saucepan of boiling salted water until tender, about 3 minutes.

Drain; place in bowl of ice water.

Drain; pat dry.

Mix cheese and mint in medium bowl.

Stir in asparagus.

Season with salt and pepper; mix in egg.

Follow directions for making and rolling Fresh Egg Pasta dough into sheets.

Starting 1 inch from 1 short side of 1 pasta sheet, drop ricotta filling by rounded teaspoonfuls down center of sheet, spacing mounds 2 inches apart.

Brush pasta edges and between mounds of filling lightly with water.

Cover with second pasta sheet, pressing down around filling to eliminate air pockets and to seal.

Using fluted pastry wheel, cut pasta between filling, trimming sides to form 2 to 2 and 1/4-inch ravioli.

Repeat with more pasta and remaining filling, making about 36.

Place ravioli on floured baking sheet; let dry 30 minutes.

Working in 2 batches, cook ravioli in very large pot of boiling salted water until just tender, stirring gently, about 3 minutes.

Drain ravioli.

Divide hot pea sauce among 6 plates.

Top with ravioli.

Drizzle with olive oil and serve. Makes 6 servings.
