Homemade Ravioli Recipe
Ingredients
  • 6 to 6-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 6 eggs
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
SAUCE:
  • 1 can crushed tomatoes 28 ounces
  • 1-1/2 cups tomato puree
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/3 cup tomato paste
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh basil
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh oregano
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
FILLING:
  • 1 carton ricotta cheese 15 ounces
  • 2 cups shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese 8 ounces
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 egg lightly beaten
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh basil
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh parsley
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
Instructions
  1. Place 6 cups flour in a large bowl. Make a well in the center. Beat the eggs, water and oil; pour into well. Stir together, forming a ball. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 8-10 minutes, adding remaining flour if necessary to keep dough from sticking. Cover and let rest for 30 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a sauce pot, combine the sauce ingredients. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 1 hour, stirring occasionally.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the filling ingredients. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
  4. Divide pasta dough into fourths; roll one portion to 1/16-in. thickness. Working quickly, place rounded teaspoonfuls of filling 1 in. apart over half of pasta sheet. Brush around filling with water to moisten. Fold sheet over; press down to seal. Cut into squares with a pastry wheel. Repeat with remaining dough and filling.
  5. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add ravioli. Reduce heat to a gentle simmer; cook for 1-2 minutes or until ravioli float to the top and are tender. Drain. Spoon sauce over ravioli.
