Homemade Ravioli // Recipe

July 12, 2013

I've been eating all kinds of yumminess at home the last few days. I think my youngest sister stole a few of my domesticated-woman-genes but being the cooks official taste tester is more than okay with me! Last night, I entered the kitchen to see her hard at work making homemade ravioli and couldn't help but want to share it this morning because it was that good AND would make a fun weekend project :)

Basic Pasta //
1 1/2 cups semolina flour
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
6 large free range eggs
In a large bowl combine flours and mix well. Next, create a well in the centre of the flour and crack eggs directly into it. Then bring flour over eggs and begin to mix with your hands. This part is going to get messy, but just keep mixing :) Continue to mix your dough until it becomes smooth and elastic. Allow to rest for 30 minutes-2 hours (under moist kitchen towel) before using.
Ricotta Cheese Kale Filling // 

1/2 cup ricotta cheese
1/2 cup finely shredded kale (stems removed)
2 TBSP olive oil
3 cloves minced garlic
2 fresh sprigs of oregano
1/4 cup shredded parmesan

Combine all ingredients into a bowl and its ready for the next step.

Assembling your ravioli // 

Cut dough into two pieces and roll out to an 1/8″ thick on a heavily floured surface [rolled out thinner is better than thicker, otherwise ravioli will taste really "doughy" when done]. Using a small cookie cutter (about 1 1/2″) to cut out circles (squares could also be done freehand). Fill raviolis with about 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of filling in centre of circle. Wet edges of both circles and pinch edges together. Set aside in one layer on floured surface until ready to use. Next fill a large stock pot with water and season generously with salt and a small amount of oil. Bring to boil. When all raviolis are filled and ready to cook drop them all into pot and cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring thoroughly at beginning to prevent sticking. Drain and plate. Top with your favorite pasta sauce [we used Alfredo] and parmesan cheese. Enjoy!
