When they are made for Shavuot, these ravioli are usually lled with a mixture of ricotta, eggs, grated cheese and a dash of sugar, then served with melted butter and grated cheese, but they are also delicious with tomato sauce or pesto.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
50g butter, melted
freshly grated parmesan cheese, to serve

For the ravioli dough

Quantity Ingredient
250g italian ‘00’ flour
3 large eggs
1/2 teaspoon salt

For the filling

Quantity Ingredient
350g ricotta cheese
1 egg, plus 1 egg yolk
1 tablespoon sugar
pinch salt

Method

  1. To make the ravioli dough, follow the method for the pasta, below
  2. While the pasta dough rests, make the filling. Place the ricotta, egg and egg yolk, sugar and salt in a bowl and mix well.
  3. Roll out the pasta into two very thin rectangles of equal size. Place teaspoonfuls of the filling over one sheet of the dough at regular intervals, about 4cm apart. Cover with the other sheet of dough and press well around each mound. Cut the ravioli into 5cm squares with a pastry or ravioli cutter. Line them up on a lightly floured board or tray, making sure they do not touch, and leave for 15 minutes to dry.
  4. Cook the ravioli in plenty of lightly salted boiling water for 5–6 minutes or until they float to the surface. Remove with a slotted spoon and transfer to a warmed serving dish. Pour over the melted butter and sprinkle with grated parmesan. Serve at once.

Pasta

  • To make the pasta, place the flour in a mound on a large wooden board or work surface and make a deep well in the centre. Drop in one egg at a time and add the salt. Gradually beat in the flour with a fork, then form into a soft ball. Knead well for 10 minutes or until the dough is smooth and elastic. Do not add too much flour or the dough will become hard to roll. If the dough seems too dry, add a teaspoon or so of water. Wrap the dough in a damp cloth and allow it to rest for 30 minutes.
