Garden Greens-Stuffed Ravioli


This is actually a post that I had in my drafts folder for years. Literally years. My boys made these for me awhile back and I am thrilled to share their efforts for this event though I didn't take many glamor shots of the final dish because I was so busy stuffing my face.


Ingredients


Filling

  • 2 cups chopped garden greens

  • 1/2 small onion, minced (approximately 1/4 cup)

  • 2 Tablespoons butter

  • 1 cup ricotta cheese

  • 3/4 cup grated parmesan cheese

  • 1 egg yolk

  • freshly ground salt

  • freshly ground pepper

  • freshly grated nutmeg (approximately 1/4 teaspoons)


Ravioli

  • laminated dough (see this post)

  • Also needed: flour, water in a spray bottle, ravioli cutter


Serving

  • sauce

  • herbs

  • more parmesan cheese for grating


Procedure


Filling

Heat butter in a small skillet. Add onions and cook until translucent, approximately 5 minutes. Stir in the greens. Salt to taste and cook for another minute.

Transfer garden greens mixture to a medium mixing bowl. Stir in remaining ingredients. Adjust seasonings to preference. Set aside.



Ravioli

Roll the dough to a thinness of 5 or 6 on the pasta machine. They rolled it through at a 2, first, then moved to a 5 which worked well for our purposes.

Lay the dough on a floured surface or parchment paper.



Place a mound of filling on the dough and spray the entire surface with water. Lay another rolled dough over the top. Press out any extra air to create a seal around the filling.


Using a ravioli cutter, cut around the filling carefully. Place the finished ravioli on a floured parchment-lined cookie sheet. Repeat until all of the dough or all of the filling has been used.


To cook these: drop them into salted, boiling water. Cook for four to five minutes. Gently remove them from the pot and fold them into a sauce.


For this batch, I made a quick sauce with garlic, this cherry tomato sauce, and fresh basil. My ravioli makers were so proud. Here's a close-up of their creation!



That's a wrap for my ravioli offering. The group will be back next month, posting garlic recipes. Stay tuned!
