Bravo! Tips And Easy Ravioli Recipes For Beginners

Ravioli may seem like one of the scarier and more difficult pastas to get the hang of making at home, but never fear! It is actually much simpler than you think. Basically, you just mix your ingredients together and wrap it up! When you have the right tools and suit it to your own tastes, ravioli can be as simple as 1,2, eat — or at least, it will be with time and a little practice.

Perhaps you are an experimental pasta lover, a lover of walnuts or basil cream, or maybe you are a more traditional meat-and-tomato foodie. Whatever your type, these easy tips and recipes will have you on your way to making delicious ravioli for you and your friends.

1. Have all your tools ready

Be prepared and have everything you need ready before you start. Have your ingredients, your pasta cutter, utensils, and bowls out.

Hint: have a plastic bag ready for your dough. When you are rolling it out, you will only use a bit at a time, so keep the rest wrapped up and moist.

2. Use quality dough

It is important that you use good dough. All you really need is eggs, flour, and salt. You can buy the dough readymade from the store (we recommend fresh homemade dough — it wins by a mile!) but if you want to try making it yourself, we recommend this incredible easy pasta recipe.

3. The filling is just as important

Don’t make your filling too runny and make sure it’s something you would eat on its own. The beauty is that you can choose whatever you like!

4. Invest in a ravioli cutter or press

It will save you time and energy. The process will be much easier and the outcome will be worth it.

5. Use lots of filling

Make the ravioli firm and full and try not to let any air in — but don’t worry too much about getting a little trapped air inside, you will get better with time and practice.

6. Be creative!

Pick whatever filling you like. You can start small and easy, but try new things — crush nuts, blended vegetables, or slow-cook meat! You may not always love the outcome, but you’ll never know until you try.
