Welcome to 'How to Make Homemade Ravioli'! Get ready for a delicious journey into the world of Italian cuisine.


Slide up your sleeves and let's start with the basic dough. Combine 2 cups of all-purpose flour with 3 eggs and a pinch of salt.


Knead the dough until it becomes smooth and elastic. Cover it with a damp cloth and let it rest for 30 minutes to allow the gluten to relax.


Meanwhile, let's prepare the filling. Mix 1 cup of ricotta cheese, 1/2 cup of grated Parmesan, 1 egg, and a handful of chopped herbs.


Roll out the dough into thin sheets using a pasta machine or a rolling pin. Cut it into squares or circles, depending on your preference.


Place a teaspoon of filling in the center of each piece of dough. Moisten the edges with water and fold it over to seal the ravioli.


Press the edges firmly to ensure a tight seal. You can use a fork to create a decorative border or a ravioli stamp for a more professional look.


Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and carefully drop the ravioli in. Cook them for about 3-4 minutes or until they float to the surface.


Using a slotted spoon, gently transfer the cooked ravioli to a serving dish. Drizzle with your favorite sauce, be it marinara or creamy Alfredo.


Garnish with a sprinkle of grated Parmesan and a few fresh herbs. Serve hot and enjoy the fruits of your labor. Buon appetito!
