Cheesy spinach ravioli

Preparation time: 10 minutes
Total time: approx. 1 hour
Yield: 17-20 ravioli

Dough:

  • 3 cups universal flour, divided
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon olive oil
  • 4 whole eggs
  • 2 egg yolks
  • water

Filling:

  • 1/2 teaspoon olive oil
  • 2 cups chopped spinach, fresh or frozen
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch of pepper
  • 1 container (15 ounces) ricotta cheese

Toppings:

  • 1 jar (24 ounces) RAGÙ traditional sauce in old-fashioned style
  • grated mozzarella cheese
  • 2 chopped basil leaves
  • 2 chopped sprigs of rosemary
  • grated parmesan cheese (optional)
  1. To make the dough: Put 2 1/2 dl flour in the bowl and make a hole in the middle. Add salt, garlic powder, olive oil, eggs and egg yolks to the hole. Slowly bring flour into center and knead into balls. Cover with bowl and let rest 20 minutes.
  2. To make filling: Add olive oil to the pan over medium heat; add spinach, salt and pepper and sauté until spinach has withered. Allow to cool and then mix in the ricotta cheese; set aside.
  3. Cut the dough in half. Sprinkle remaining flour on a large cutting board and roll the dough to 1/8-inch thickness. Cut into rectangles and then cut into 2-3-inch squares. Set leftovers aside. Brush water on the squares and then place 1 teaspoon of spinach-ricotta filling in the center of each other square. Top with the remaining squares. Use a fork to shrink the edges. Repeat with the remaining dough. Shape leftovers into balls and repeat.
  4. Put ravioli in boiling water, 8-10 minutes; they will rise to the top when finished.
  5. Heat the sauce in a saucepan over medium heat until simmering.
  6. Place ravioli on plate and top with hot sauce, mozzarella cheese, basil and rosemary. Grate parmesan cheese on top if desired.
