Homemade Ravioli...

Wednesday, February 6, 2013

Pasta Week continues on Walking on Sunshine 
with another favorite,

Homemade Ravioli...




Since I started making my own pasta, the one thing I really wanted
to learn how to make was Homemade Ravioli.

I tried a few times, using a biscuit cutter...


Then I purchased a ravioli cutter...


But I found the raviolis were TOO BIG.
After some research I found the following tool...


Let's BEGIN!

Start with one recipe of pasta dough, rolled out into sheets.
I give full directions with photos HERE on how I prepare my pasta sheets...


Take one sheet of pasta dough and place it over the ravioli mold...


Then take the white plastic tray and gently press into the dough.
You are making indention's where your filling will go...


Fill with a spoonful of ricotta cheese.
I do NOT add egg to my ricotta cheese.  
I found it made the ravioli too runny...


Cover with another sheet of pasta dough...


Now take your rolling pin and gently, but firmly roll over the top...


Perfect...


Beautiful ravioli...



With a sharp knife, remove the ravioli...


Before you know it, you will have a tray of delicious ravioli...


Or TWO trays...



Bring a large pot of water to a rapid boil and 
place the ravioli in the boiling water, GENTLY...


Boil for a few minutes, until they start to float...


Drain, GENTLY, you might want to lift them out with a slotted spoon...


Serve with your favorite sauce and Parmesan cheese...



The best thing about making homemade ravioli is you can FREEZE them.
Place them on a tray lined with wax paper and sprinkled with 
flour or semolina flour and place in the freezer until they are firm...


Perfect...


Don't they look good...



Place in a freezer bag to enjoy at a later date...


Tomorrow I'll be sharing another family favorite,

Homemade Manicoti...


And it doesn't involve pasta at all. 

Come back to see another EASY and DELICIOUS recipe!

Enjoy your day!

  6. I haven't tried homemade pasta but I think the ravioli looks easier than waiting for the fettucine to dry. My daughter has a small pasta machine which I might have to borrow.

    Love this series, thanks so much for sharing,
