Prep: 1 hr
Cook: 30 min
Makes: 12 Ravioli
Meat or cheese mixture of your choice, meat should be pre-cooked. I used bison.
- 1.5 C. All purpose Flour
- 3 Eggs
- 1 tsp Salt
- 1 TBS Olive Oil
- 2 Cups Chopped tomatoes with juice.
- 1 TBS Olive oil
- 1 TBS Garlic, minced
- 2 TBS Fresh Basil, chopped
- 2 TBS Shallots, minced
- Mushrooms, 1/2 Cup, sliced
In an electric mixer fitted with a dough hook, combine flour and salt. Add eggs 1 at a time and continue to mix. Drizzle in oil and continue to incorporate all the flour until it forms a ball. Sprinkle some flour on work surface, knead the dough until elastic and smooth. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and let it rest for about 30 minutes to allow the gluten to relax.
Cut the ball of dough in half, cover and reserve the dough you are not immediately using to prevent it from drying out. Dust the counter and dough with flour. Form the dough into a rectangle and roll it through the pasta machine, 2 or 3 times, at its widest setting. Guide the sheet of dough with the palm of your hand as it emerges from the rollers. *Reduce the setting and crank the dough through again, 2 or 3 times. Continue until the machine is at its narrowest setting. The dough should be paper-thin, about 1/8-inch thick.
Dust the counter and dough with flour, lay out the long sheet of pasta. Use a heart cookie cutter (small) to cut the hearts.
Place a tsp of your meat/cheese mixture of choice on one heart and seal with another heart on top. Seal edges with fork or pastry sealer. Use
Boil in large pot of salted water for about 7 min. Strain.
- In a large braiser or skillet, heat oil, add shallots and garlic, cook for 1 min until fragrant.
