Ravioli 101 ♥

Here is a perfect sunday dinner recipe, easy homemade ravioli! Perfect dish for fall! enjoy! ♥ 

3 cups unbleached all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1/4 – 1/2 cup hot boiling water

Directions ♥ 

To prepare the pasta dough, start measure out the flour and the salt on a clean surface.  Make a well in the center and add the eggs. Use your fingertips to break up the egg yolks and gently mix in the flour until the mixture is crumbly and resembles sand. Gradually add the hot water, a few drips at a time, carefully working it into the flour mixture until a dough forms (be careful not to burn yourself!). Knead the dough for about 6-8 minutes, until smooth.  Shape the dough into a ball, wrap with plastic wrap, and let rest for at least 30 minutes (or refrigerate up to 24 hours).
Once the dough has rested, use a pasta machine (or if you’re brave and strong, a rolling pin) to roll the pasta out into wide sheets. Place tablespoons of your filling on the dough,( you may use ricotta, parmesan cheese, or a ground meat whatever you please!)  and top with another sheet of pasta dough. -
Seal the edges around the filling and cut into ravioli. I used a ravioli maker you can get your own here..... I love my local Glorioso's Italian Market to do this. They have a perfect ravioli maker! which makes the job much easier (and also yields pretty, perfectly shaped ravioli). Place the ravioli on the prepared baking sheet and refrigerate until ready to prepare. enjoy! I told you it was easy! ♥
