Ravioli is the Italian style of wrapping ingredients into pasta dough. Simply described as Italian dumplings.
Personally love dumplings of any form, which means ravioli is also on my list of favourites.
From kneeding to rolling the dough requires a certain amount of time and effort commitment . But when you see the end results, it will just give you the motivation to do more and do better .
Recipe for ravioli below :
1) 3 1/2 eggs, beaten
2) 400g all-purpose flour , sieved
3) 1tsp salt, sieved
4) 1tbsp olive oil (optional)
Pour the flour into a mount and create a hole in the middle.
Mix in the eggs from the middle and slowly stir in the flour from the sides, until crumbly.
Kneed the crumbs together and add in water if too dry or flour if too moist during the process. Once kneeded into a dough ball, wrap in cling wrap and put in the refrigerator for 20mins.
A nice dough would be moist , soft yet firm. You can then start kneeding and rolling the dough into different shapes and sizes. If you have a mould cutter, you could use it too.
Place the mushrooms in the middle and wrap them together.
Boil the ravioli for about 10-15 mins and it is ready to be served.
You could cook it in olive oil , garlic or butter or in tomato sauce like me.
Pasta cooking is very versatile and you can cook up a delicious plate to your very own liking.
