Ingredients list

Pasta dough

  • 250 g pastry flour (wheat flour type 405)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 egg yolk
  • durum wheat semolina



  • First, put the flour, as well as the eggs and the egg yolk in the mixing bowl of a stand mixer and let it knead for about 7 minutes. If the dough is not elastic enough, you can add a little warm water. If it is too sticky, add a little flour.
    250 g pastry flour, 2 eggs, 1 egg yolk
  • Then continue to knead the dough thoroughly with your hands, then form it into a ball and return it to the bowl. Cover with a cloth and let rest for 30 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, wash the spinach thoroughly and shake dry. Heat a pan with a dash of olive oil and let the spinach collapse, stirring constantly. Then put it in a colander and drain.
    250 g leaf spinach
  • Place the ricotta and grated parmesan in a large bowl and season with a pinch of nutmeg, salt and pepper. Then mix thoroughly.
    50 g parmesan cheese, 125 g ricotta cheese, salt, pepper, nutmeg
  • Now put the spinach into the container of the hand blender and puree finely. Then add the puree to the ricotta mixture and mix well. Finally, fill the mixture into a piping bag.
  • After resting, roll out the dough thinly on a surface floured with durum wheat semolina. Then cut into oblong strips. Make sure that the dough strips are slightly wider than the ravioli cutter used.
  • Now always put a heap of the filling with enough distance to each other in the middle of the strips. Then place another strip exactly on top. Now press the cutter down firmly on each ravioli to cut off the dough and seal the filling inside. Then transfer to a baking sheet floured with semolina. Repeat this process for the remaining ravioli.
  • Now cook the ricotta spinach ravioli for about 3 minutes in boiling salted water. Then transfer to deep plates, drizzle with a little olive oil and sprinkle with freshly grated parmesan if desired.
    Buon appetito!
