easy ravioli recipe instruction
- Preheat your oven to 400. Fill a deep saute pan with salted water and bring to a boil.
- Place your cherry tomatoes in a small roasting pan and cook until they have burst and are tender.
- Next, make the filling. Drain the tuna and add to a mixing bowl. Chop 2 tablespoons of the fresh herbs, juice the lemon, and add the cream cheese to the tuna. Season with salt and pepper and mix altogether.
- Roll out the pasta dough to the second thinnest level. Place 2 teaspoons of tuna on top of the dough, place a cherry tomato on top of the tuna.
- Dip your finger into water and moisten around the tuna filling. Place another sheet of pasta over top. Press the pasta together, making sure to remove any air around the filling. Cut out the ravioli with a cookie cutter or baby bottle and pinch the edges together.
- As you finish about a dozen at a time, drop the ravioli into the boiling water and cook until they are tender and floating.
- When they are finished cooking, remove from the water, toss with sauce, and enjoy!
easy ravioli tips and tricks
- The ravioli can be made and assembled in advance. Place the formed raviolis on a cookie sheet sprinkled with corn meal (to prevent sticking), and place in the freezer until ready to cook. Just know that once they are frozen they will take longer to cook.
- I have made a lot of homemade pasta. If you are feeling intimidated by the idea of homemade pasta dough, or simply pressed for time, however, there’s a way to work around it. Do not let it keep you from making this recipe. You may just as easily use wonton wrappers instead of the homemade dough.
