05 Jan Homemade Ravioli
2 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
1 1/2 teaspoons sea salt
3 eggs, plus 1 for the egg wash
2 tablespoons olive oil
Ravioli filling of your choice (ricotta cheese mixed with an egg, salt, pepper and basil is delicious)
In a large bowl whisk together the our and salt. Make a well in the center of the our and add in the eggs all at once. Mix them together well using your hands. Add the olive oil and knead the dough for 5 minutes. Form into a ball and leave in the bowl, covered with plastic wrap for 30 minutes. Take a small piece of the dough and either run it through a pasta machine a few times OR use a rolling pin, some our and a considerable amount of muscle to create a thin sheet. Cut circles out of the dough using a cookie cutter or a glass. Place 1 teaspoon of lling in the center of half the circles. Lightly brush egg wash around the edge of the circle. Place the second circle on top over the lling and use a fork to crimp the edges all around. Continue with remaining pasta dough until all the dough or lling has been used. To cook the pasta, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add ravioli and cook for 2-3 minutes. Once they oat to the top it is done. Drain pasta and toss with olive oil or sauce.
