Homemade Pasta and Ravioli

The ravioli is a super kid friendly dough because it’s not very sticky and easy to use. Have fun creating shapes and filling with different goodies!

Pasta/Ravioli

1 cup semolina flour

1 cup whole wheat flour

2 tablespoon flax seed, ground + 2 tablespoons hot water (mixed together)

7 tablespoons water

4 tablespoon oil

In a food processor pulse together the flours and flaxseed mixture. Slowly feed in the oil and water. Turn out onto a smooth service and knead the dough for 5 minutes. Place in a warm bowl with a warm towel on top OR wrap in plastic wrap and let sit 15-20 minutes.

Roll dough with a rolling pin then feed through a pasta press or roll to desired thickness and slice with a knife into whatever shape you want.

When I make ravioli or am making large batches of pasta that will take time to complete, I take what I need and leave the rest wrapped or in the bowl with a towel on top until ready to use. I also keep the towel warm.When making the dough and shapes, it is fun to play, use your hands, get the kids involved, make shapes… just have fun 🙂 We like using different dough presses too.

I really like this pasta baked. Put sauce on the bottom, lay ravioli on top, top with more sauce and bake at 350 for 30 minutes. YUM!

Below is a delicious pumpkin ravioli with a vegan pumpkin cream sauce! DELICIOUS! Will post recipe soon.
