Baked Ravioli Pie with Pulled Pork and Ricotta

Ok, so it was an experiment....didn't turn out quite like we'd anticipated, but still tasted good. Looks like I need some more practice for the 'fests, before this one is perfected, but thought I'd share the fun anyway![p]Attempted to do a baked ravioli, but in the end, it ended up more like a lasagna, since all the individual ravioli's all stuck together in the pie plate! Did one pie with the traditional cheese filling of ricotta, parmesan, mozzarella, egg, parsley, salt and pepper and one pie with finely chopped pulled pork, ricotta, egg, parsley, salt, and pepper. [p]Will definately try again....![p]ravioli-filling.jpg[p]ravioli-topped.jpg[p]ravioli-sauced.jpg[p]ravioli-covered.jpg[p]ravioli-ready.jpg[p]ravioli-served.jpg[p]QBabe

    Wow Tonia. That looks really good. Even for breakfast.[p]You have been cooking up a STORM latetly! I love your little rock sculpture, and the way the egg gets that "built into a mountainside in Florida" look.[p]Chris

    Nature Boy,[p]Hi Chris...definately been having some fun with cooks here! [p]Those little rock sculptures were born of necessity....'twas an attempt to keep the dogs from running in between the eggs, but I need to build the mountains a little higher, since they don't seem to faze the pups at all. I think they watch me for my reaction and just love to give me little heart attacks every time they leap through...![p]Happy Monday!

  • QBabe,
    once more, your pictures are fabulous. .. .that pie, whether it stayed as ravioli or as a lasagna, looks delicious. . did it have much of a smokey taste to it??. . .did you use any wood in the fire?. ..[p]i've thought about taking cooked ravioli, prior to adding any sauce, and putting them in a collander and smoking them for about 5 minutes to impart some smoke directly to the pasta, then finishing them with sauce. . ..[p]keep on posting those pictures. . .i think this set added 5 lbs. to my girth. ..

    mad max beyond eggdome,[p]The pie was good, just not quite what we'd anticipated...LOL! I did not use any wood, just the smoke from the lump, which I let burn pretty clean before adding the pasta to the cooker. So, the smoke flavor was fairly mild. I was afraid if I added wood, it'd take up too much smoke and be overpowering...[p]Tonia

    QBabe,[p]That was weird...the earlier reply to your post from "JK" was not from me, but a duplicate of one someone else sent (above). Hmmm. Anyway, I have a quick question -- do you leave your Eggs outside and exposed to the elements year-round here in Florida? I've been keeping my Egg under a covered porch, thinking that rain and humidity would not be a good thing on the metal. I roll it out when I use it. Am I being over-protective?
  • Nature BoyNature Boy Posts: 8,400
    JK,
    I suppose the more moist it is, the quicker the metal might rust. Covering is better than not. But my 3 eggs have been outside with no cover (I am also on the moist East coast) for 4 years straight. Even if you put a cover over it, some moisture will still get in there. [p]I wouldn't say it is overprotective. You will probably get more total mileage if you cover it. BGE makes some real nice covers.[p]Cheers!

    JK,
    Yep, that was weird....[p]As far as leaving the eggs out, yes we do. I'd rather have them covered, but can't do the screen room I want just yet. And, unfortunately, when we've had covers in the past they haven't worked out so well. The egg is too hot to cover when we get done so end up waiting 'til later to cover it, and nine times out of ten, end up forgetting at that point. Plus, our dogs (two lab mixes, a rhodesian ridgeback mix, and a doberman) would have a field day with covers...all I'd find when I got home was a bunch of toppled eggs and some shredded covers![p]So, I guess I'm taking my chances, but I'd rather have eggs out in the elements than no eggs at all...heee![p]Tonia
