Bolognese Ravioli 

INGREDIENTS 

 

 

  • FRESH EGG PASTA

300 grams plain flour (no strong flour)

3 medium eggs (63 -65 grams each including shell, room temperature)

1 1/2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

 

  • EPRONTO FILLING

1 jar EPRONTO (250 grams) choosing between Bolognese, Lamb or Venison, 

breadcrumbs

salt 

pepper 

 

  • SEASONING

Butter

sage (preferably fresh, otherwise dry)

Parmigiano Reggiano to taste

 

Useful items:

rolling pin, or better the pastry sheeter,

a ravioli mould 

sac a` poche

 

Steps

Prepare the filling: In a bowl put the EPRONTO jar content, adding breadcrumbs and blend it together, my suggestion is using an immersion blender to check easily the consistency.

You need to achieve a thick dry and uniform texture. If you like you can add a pinch of salt, pepper and nutmeg, to taste. The moisture from EPRONTO ragu must be absorbed and the mixture is quite dry but soft and smooth. When it is ready, pour it in a sac a` poche and set aside.

 

Pasta: Pour the flour in a bowl (or on the table), add eggs, and stir with a fork letting the eggs taking up the flour, a bit at a time.

When it is too thick for the fork start kneading by hand for 4/5 minutes, until the dough is firm, even and elastic. Wrap it in cling film and let it rest for 30 minutes.

Clean your work surface very well, and roll the dough: using the machine it is very easy, usually, the last number (9) is the right one.

On my video you can see how I use the mould I have: it gives 24 small ravioli, and usually, 1 portion consists of 48 ravioli.

It is important not to cover with flour the upper side of the pasta dough, where you need to close the ravioli. On the other side, flour is important not to let ravioli stick to the mould's surface.

Fill the mould using the sac a`poche and then close the ravioli with another sheet of pasta, and seal the pasta by rolling the pin over it. 

Let ravioli rest on a kitchen towel well spread with flour while you complete the batch.  

Cooking ravioli: 

Prepare a big pot of boiling water, with salt (10 grams per litre), including 2 tbsp of olive oil to avoid ravioli sticking to each other. Pour them in boiling water, cooking for 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from water once cooked.

Meanwhile melt the butter in a small pan, with sage, pour it on cooked ravioli and cover with grated Parmigiano Reggiano (or Grana Padano).
