Ravioli

This was my second attempt at making my own fresh pasta the first time I didn’t have a pasta roller so the tagliatelle was pretty chunky although still edible. I had it with some home made pesto:Image

I got a ravioli cutter for a christmas present so that was pretty much my inspiration for attempting it. I wasn’t sure how necessary a pasta roller was until I used it. The sheets just come out so silky and make for a much better pasta. I use 00 flour to make pasta; 1 egg – 100g sieved flour per person and a little pinch of salt. So simple.

For the filling I sauteed some chestnut mushrooms with a little garlic which I then wrapped spoonfuls of them in half strips of parma ham. My thinking was along the lines of ham and mushroom pizza is good so why not put them in a raviolo?

I served them with a sage butter:Image
