Feb 9th Valentine's Day

Counting down the days to Valentine's Day

 Heart shaped Raviolis-2011

  • Mix 1 1/2 cups of flour with 1 1/2 cup of water for 5 minutes.
  • Let the dough sit for 10mins then divide in groups.
  • Roll your dough with a rolling pin. Keep some extra flour if it sticks.
  • Use a cookie cutter (heart) to shape.
  • Spoon in your mix.
  • Put another cut shape on top. 
  • Use a fork to press the seam. If you over stuff the middle it will push out even if you are gentle with the fork. It takes some practice.
  • Place the ravioli in a boiling pot of water and cook ;-)

    Use your favorite sauce topping when done. This recipe makes 24 raviolis. You may need more flour. I increased the amount 2/13/13 but didn't measure.

For the stuffing you want to fully cook any meat, mash ricotta cheese and use a food processor or magic bullet to blend. I cooked one box of spinach and added ricotta until satisfied. It's a matter of preference on the texture. Add in any other seasonings(garlic) or cheese. Yum!



I used a few tablespoons of ricotta and a handful of cooked spinach. I minced 4 cloves of garlic and placed it in the food processor. You may add some EVOO to help blend.
