Homemade Classic Ravioli Recipe
Classic Ravioli is a traditional Italian dish that is made from fresh pasta that is filled with various ingredients such as cheese, meat, or vegetables.
The pasta is typically cut into square or round shapes and then filled with the desired ingredients. The ravioli is then boiled and served with a variety of sauces such as marinara, pesto, or butter and sage.
Homemade ravioli is a comforting and delicious dish that can be enjoyed for a special occasion or as a comforting weeknight dinner.
The fillings can vary and be tailored to personal preference, giving the dish a lot of versatility.
In a large mixing bowl,
combine the flour, eggs, and salt.
Mix well until the dough comes together.
Knead the dough for about 10 minutes or until it becomes smooth and elastic.
If the dough is too dry, add a little water, 1 tablespoon at a time.
Cover the dough with plastic wrap and let it rest for at least 30 minutes.
Roll out the dough on a floured surface until it is very thin.
Place spoonfuls of your desired filling on half of the rolled out dough, leaving a small space between each spoonful.
Fold the other half of the dough over the filling and press down around the edges to seal the ravioli.
Cut the ravioli with a knife or ravioli cutter.
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Gently drop the ravioli into the boiling water and cook for about 3-4 minutes or until they float to the surface.
Drain the ravioli and serve with your desired sauce.
