Homemade Spinach Ravioli

In the heart of every great meal lies a homemade delicacy that captivates both the senses and the soul. Imagine a culinary adventure that starts with the freshest spinach leaves, meticulously blended into a vibrant green dough, and then lovingly wrapped around a filling of creamy ricotta cheese and aromatic herbs. This is the essence of our Homemade Spinach Ravioli, a recipe that transcends generations, offering a taste of tradition with a modern twist.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups fresh spinach leaves, washed and finely chopped
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Start by making the pasta dough. In a large mixing bowl, combine the chopped spinach and flour.
  2. Make a well in the center and add the eggs. Slowly incorporate the flour into the eggs until a dough forms.
  3. Knead the dough on a floured surface for about 5 minutes or until it becomes smooth and elastic. Wrap it in plastic wrap and let it rest for 30 minutes.
  4. In the meantime, prepare the filling. In a mixing bowl, combine ricotta cheese, Parmesan cheese, minced garlic, dried basil, salt, and pepper. Mix until well combined.
  5. Roll out the pasta dough into thin sheets. Place teaspoonfuls of the filling onto one sheet of pasta, leaving some space between each spoonful.
  6. Place another sheet of pasta on top and press around the filling to seal. Use a ravioli cutter or a sharp knife to cut out individual ravioli.
  7. Bring a large pot of salted water to boil. Cook the ravioli in batches for 2-3 minutes or until they float to the surface. Remove with a slotted spoon.
  8. Serve hot, garnished with extra Parmesan cheese and fresh basil leaves.
