Basic Homemade Ravioli Dough Recipe

Serves 2

Ingredients
175g/6oz Plain Flour
Salt
2 Medium Eggs, beaten
A little water

Serves 4

Ingredients
350g/12oz Plain Flour
Salt
3 Large Eggs, beaten
A little Water


Instructions

1. Combine the flour and salt in a medium mixing bowl, make a well in the centre then add the beaten egg and mix with a knife until the mixture starts coming together, adding 1 – 2 tablespoons of water if necessary to form a relatively stiff dough.

2. Knead briefly in the bowl, then turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface and continue to knead for about 4-5 minutes until very smooth and elastic.  A good indication of the correct texture is when you can knead the dough with very little flour on the work surface without it sticking.

3. Wrap with clingfilm and leave to rest for at least 10-20 minutes during which time you can make the filling.

General Tips on making coloured & flavoured ravioli dough

  • The extra ingredients should be mixed in with the beaten egg before adding to the flour.  This ensures the pasta turns out as silky smooth as possible.

  • Don't over do it. Careful consideration should be given as to the filling and sauce being used to ensure the finished dish doesn't have conflicting or over-powering flavours

  • When using pureed vegetables, a good rule of thumb is to add up to one-half of the weight of the flour e.g. if using 350g/12oz flour, use up to 175g/6oz pureed vegetables

  • If the puree is very wet, you may need to add extra flour to achieve the right consistency for the finished dough. Don't add any water unless the dough seems too dry.

  • Only use fresh herbs as generally dried herbs won't get enough cooking to reconstitute them and bring out the full flavour. Add 2-4 tablespoons of fresh herbs to the standard serves 4 dough recipe depending on the flavour strength of the herbs used

  • Think about adding spices such as nutmeg (which would go well with a ricotta and spinach filling) or chilli powder (which would add an extra kick to ravioli with less flavoursome fillings)

Flavoured Ravioli Pasta Dough Recipes

 

Unlike coloured pasta dough, these doughs are made specifically to add another flavour dimension to the finished ravioli recipe, so need to be chosen carefully so as not to conflict with the filling and sauce. We've divided these recipes into two sections – flavoured which don't affect the look of the dough,  and speckled which not only add flavour but also give the dough a two-tone peppered appearance.
