3 eggs
all-purpose flour (you’ll need maybe 2 cups, 240g total)
1 cup (8oz, 250g) ricotta cheese
mozzarella (and handful, grated)
pecorino or parmesan cheese (a little pile, grated)
28 oz (794g) can whole plum tomatoes
1 carrot
1 shallot (or half an onion)
3-4 garlic cloves
white wine (optional)
olive oil
garlic powder
fresh herbs (I used whole basil leaves)

Crack two eggs into a mixing bowl. Separate the third egg — put the white in a different bowl and put the yolk in with the other eggs. Beat the bigger bowl of eggs until smooth, and then stir in as much flour as you can with a utensil. Dump the dough onto a floured cutting board and knead in some more flour until the dough ball is reasonably smooth and firm and only a little sticky to the touch. Cover and let rest for about a half hour.

Peel and chop the garlic, shallots and carrot into little bits. Heat a film of oil in a wide pan and fry the veg until soft and starting to brown. Deglaze with the tomatoes and all of their liquid. Mash up the tomatoes, season the sauce conservatively with salt and pepper (you can add more to taste later), and stir in a glug of white wine if you’re into that. Let simmer gently, stirring occasionally, until thick.


Combine all the cheeses with the egg white along with a small pinch of salt (the cheese is naturally salty), some pepper and garlic powder. Stir until smooth.

Get a large pot of heavily salted water ready to boil the pasta.

After the dough has rested, role it out into a cylinder and slice of a disc of dough. Flour it and mash it out with your fingers into a wider circle. Take any smooth, cylindrical thing (I used a pint glass) and roll out the circle until very thing. Keep dusting the flour with pasta so it doesn’t stick. Spoon some filling into the center, fold the dough over on itself, seal the edges tight and trim them with a knife if you want. Keep in mind the ravioli will expand considerable when boiled, so don’t make them too huge.


Boil the ravioli for 3-4 minutes until they all float and their color has lightened a bit. Drain but reserve some of the water to thin out your sauce, if necessary. Toss the ravioli with the sauce and finish with some fresh herbs. Unused ravioli can be frozen before being boiled.
