Day 72: Baked Ravioli
For this bake, you can buy ravioli or you can make it homemade. Nevertheless I choose to make it homemade and the results were fantastic! Also, don't feel intimidated if you don't have a pasta maker or ravioli presser. You can still roll your dough out and cut it with a pizza roller.
The filling is super simple. Substitute the cream cheese with mascarpone as well.
You don't have to do a square ravioli shape. Other shapes include circles or triangles.
Bake for 15 minutes, covered with aluminium foil two times.
Time: 1 hour 30 mins
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons sea salt
3 eggs (1 for the egg wash)
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 cups mozzarella
1 tablespoon Parmesan
2 tablespoons cream cheese
1/2 cup tomato sauce
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Combine flour and salt. Make a well in the center and add the eggs and oil. Knead for a few minutes, cover and let sit for 30 minutes. While your dough is sitting combine mozzarella, cream cheese and Parmesan in a blender and blend until smooth and creamy.
Roll out dough so thin you can almost see through it. Cut 1" rows and place dollops of filling 1/2" apart. Take another row and place it over the bottom. Crimp and cut with a pizza roller. Brush with egg wash and cook for 5 minutes in water.
In an 8" casserole pan cover the bottom with 1/4 cup tomato sauce. Add cooked ravioli and add the remaining 1/4 cup tomato sauce. Cover two times in aluminum foil and bake for 15 minutes.
