Home Made Pasta

3 cups flour

3 eggs

Drizzle olive oil

Pinch of salt

Water if dough gets too dry

Make a well in the flour and add the eggs

Whisk eggs, drizzle olive oil and pinch of salt in also. Then slowly combine the flour into the egg mixture until the dough forms.

Cover the dough with a clean dish towel and Let the dough rest for half an hour. Then roll out so it can fit through your pasta you machine. We use a hand crank roller. You can use this recipe to make any type of pasta you want.

This recipe feeds the four of us so when we are feeding more people which we always are, we make more dough. We usually have at least 12 people so we make three of these doughs.

Spinach and Ricotta Filling

2 cups ricotta

1 cup fresh spinach chopped

1 cup frozen chopped spinach cooked and drained very well

1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

2 Tbsp heavy cream or half and half

2 Tbsp chopped parsley

Salt and pepper to taste

This usually makes a little more than we need for one dough but everyone likes to eat it while they are making the ravioli!

Bueno Appetito!!
