1 1/2 cups
grated Parmesan cheese
1 1/4 tablespoons
This is just like my Italian grandmother's recipe. The only difference is to add a dash of nutmeg, and use 2 more eggs and omit the olive oil. She also used fresh garlic and a half an onion. It's a Christmas day tradition!
this reciped was just okay.
This was very good. I used the larger holes on my grinder but think I'll go for the finer texture next time. I only filled enough ravioli for one meal (it was getting late) and I barely made a dent in the filling; I should have enough ravioli to freeze for several meals. Instead of garlic salt, I used fresh garlic (and salt); I also used a handful of chopped fresh parsley instead of dried. I made it with the Fresh Semolina and Egg Pasta dough recipe and served it with a vodka tomato cream sauce.
Filling is a good base to start with. I was however only able to get about 30 raviloi not 150. And I also use fresh garlic and onion. I cooked them with the ground beef. I also added some Italian seasoning.
For the last 6 months, I have been craving the Raviolis, I always ate as a child. I had no idea how to make them. I bought every frozen brand I could find and tried them all, but none was even close to my memories. I tried making from scratch, but the texture was all wrong, and my dough was so thick it was disgusting! Then my son gave me a pasta roller yesterday for Christmas, so I went online to find raviloi recipes that were made of beef and had a smoother texture. I FOUND IT with this one! I made a very small batch to start out and used the accompany pasta dough recipe. They tasted just like I remembered! I made another batch after that. I did use some sausage as a few others recommended and the olive oil. I am freezing most of them so I can eat them whenever I want with my fresh canned Marianna Sauce that tasted like my childhood. That took some trail and error, but now with my sauce readily available and this recipe, I can relive one of my favorite meals as a child. I was so excited to rate this recipe that I became a supporting member tonight. to whomever submitted this recipe, you have my deepest thanks, (but not the few lbs, I will probably gain from eating so many of them!)
use garlic powder
This recipe was very time consuming, but delicious - well worth the wait! We will be making it again.
Wow! This was fantastic. I have to give a caveat though. I used sausage instead of beef. Just a regular old tube of mild breakfast sausage. The recipe was perfectly sized for one recipe of pasta dough in my ravioli maker. The flavors and consistency were divine. I think I will make about 1000 of these next time and freeze them so I can eat them whenever I want. SOOOOOO GOOOOOD.
