Spinach And Ricotta Ravioli

I am determined to make better use of my bread maker and so made my pasta dough in it. I am going to perfect the recipe before I share it, but if you are making it by hand it is really easy – for every 100g of pasta flour you need 1 egg and a pinch of Maldon sea salt (or equivalent quality). You need 100g per person. Simple – make the dough, knead, leave to rest for 30 minutes and then roll out. After this meal of Spinach And Ricotta Ravioli I have also bought myself a ravioli cutter to make it easier for me to get nice consistent shapes.

Ingredients used for my Spinach And Ricotta Ravioli
  • Spinach: Even though I grow my own spinach, for recipes such as this I prefer to buy baby spinach leaves as they are softer and can be used whole.
  • Garlic: always buy firm cloves and keep them in the paper till needed. Don’t worry if they sprout, but if it bothers you, plant them to grow your own.
  • Ricotta: I make my own, but use store bought if you are short of time
  • Fresh pasta: as with my ricotta I also make my own. Some supermarkets sell ready made pasta sheets.
  • Butter: unless stated, I always use unsalted butter. If you use salted butter reduce the amount of salt you add to the recipe
  • Parsley: I only ever use Italian flat leaf parsley. To me, curly parsley is reserved for steak houses who want to pretty up their plates.
  • Parmesan: if you cannot find this expensive cheese where you live, use any hard cheese which is not too strong in flavour
  • Cream: I often use UHT cream as buying fresh cream often leads to butter making as the cream goes sour.
