Happy Valentine’s Day! Katie and I thought for our first Valentine’s Day living together we would make homemade Gluten Free Crab Ravioli with Saffron Sauce. We love to cook so we thought this would be easy compared to making homemade sushi like we originally planned. Making ravioli’s from scratch is difficult enough but gluten free ravioli’s was quite the challenge! The pasta was good but it was dense compared to wheat ravioli’s. Look out for our dessert Magic Cake post coming soon!
