How to Make Ravioli - Step 1

Making ravioli from scratch is relatively easy to do and is very impressive to your dinner guests. More importantly, ravioli from scratch tastes worlds better than anything you can buy in the store. Basically, you just need to make a simple fresh pasta and then you can stuff it with almost anything - cheese, meat, vegetables, and even fruit!

Make the Pasta and Filling

Make the ravioli filling. You can fill the ravioli with almost anything. For this lesson I am using the Butternut Squash and Pear Filling. You could also use:

  • shredded chicken or beef with some grated Parmesan cheese
  • chopped shrimp with ricotta and chopped herbs
  • steamed spinach and chopped mushrooms
  • cooked diced apples with cinnamon and nutmeg

Follow the instructions for making fresh pasta through step 8.

Cover the pasta sheets with a damp towel until you are ready to use.
