Spinach and Cheese Ravioli

I've been meaning to try and make pasta for awhile now, and on Sunday I had some time to spare in between watching the hockey game!

Pasta (from The Joy of Cooking):

Spinach and Ricotta filling (from the Paupered Chef):
1 container of spinach
1/2 C ricotta cheese
1 egg
parmesan cheese

1. Make pasta and let rest for 1hr
2. Rinse spinach and cook spinach until wilted
3. Squeeze out all the water
4. Chop spinach and mix with remaining ingredients in a bowl
5. Roll out pasta and then place about 1 tbsp of filling
6. Let rest for ~1hr and then boil for 3-4min.

These turned out really well! I think that getting a pasta roller thingy would help make it thinner and stuff.  Otherwise, they were delicious!
