Mushroom, Arugula, & Ricotta Ravioli with Garlic Basil Olive Oil


For the Dough:

  •     3 Eggs

  •     1 1/2 c Flour

  •     1/4 tsp Salt

  •     Water


  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs.

  2. Then, stir in the flour & salt.  Add water as needed, until a soft dough is formed.  *Be careful not to add too much water here.

  3. Knead the dough several times, then separate it into two large pieces.

  4. On a lightly floured surface, roll out half of the dough into a very thin rectangle.

  5.  Spoon your filling by the teaspoonful at 1 1/2 inch intervals on top of the piece of rolled out dough.  Moisten your fingers with a little bit of water & wet the dough slightly around the circle of filling, to help the dough stick together when you top it.

  6.  Take the second piece of dough, roll it out into another very thin rectangle &carefully drape it over the top of the filling.

  7. Slice the dough into individual raviolis, securing the edges with a gentle press.

  8. At this step, the ravioli can be frozen or cooked immediately.

  9. To cook, bring a pot of water to a boil.  Gently slide the ravioli one by one into the boiling water and cook for 6-8 minutes.
