Ingredients and Methods


• 1kg 00 flour
• 500g egg yolk
• pinch of salt
• 1 tbsp olive oil


Step 1: Place "00" flour in a mound in a bowl. Make a well in the centre of the flour, pour eggs into the centre of the well and add salt & oil using a fork to gently whisk the eggs while using your other hand to secure the outer walls of the flour. Continue whisking, gradually drawing in the flour as you go until the dough becomes thick.

Step 2: Use your hands to bring the dough together. Knead the dough for 5 minutes or until smooth and elastic. (To check if the dough is ready, press it with the tip of your finger. If it springs back, it means it has reached the desired texture.) Rest the dough for at least half an hour for before using.


Take the pasta dough and roll it out to 1/2 mm thin. Cut the sheet into two equal-sized pieces, dust one lightly with flour, roll it up, and cover it so it stays moist. Dot the half of the sheet still on your work surface with blobs of filling about the size of a small hazelnut, putting the dots in rows that are about one inch apart roll the pasta over the filling and start pinching in between the dots forming the ravioli. Using a pasta zig zag cutting wheel cut each ravioli individually and then keep in the fridge until ready.
