Four Cheese Ravioli

When I think about Italian foods my mind goes to my homemade ravioli's. These suckers take some time to make but let me tell you, it is well worth every minute you invest in this dinner! You will surely please anyone, and everyone who tries these! You can even cheat and use Organic Simple Truth canned pasta sauce (totally fine and makes it one less step).

You Will Need:

Pasta Dough
Pasta Sauce
16 oz Organic Whole Milk Ricotta Cheese
1 Ball Organic Mozzarella Cheese
2 Cups Organic Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
1/2 Cup Organic Parmesan Cheese
1 tbsp Organic Parsley
2 Organic Pasture Raised Eggs
Salt & Pepper, to taste

Mix all the cheese, eggs, salt, pepper and parsley

Mix well

Roll out your pasta, I used a pasta roll attachment with my KitchenAid mixer (you can find here)
**let me tell you, that attachment is WORTH the money! you get 3 rollers!**

We pressed it through 1 about 4 times, folding after each

Then slowly worked towards a 4 (we rolled through the 2 once, and the 3 once)

The 4 is PERFECT thinness! 

Cut the stripe in half, and place one half on your floured counter (PLEASE FLOUR! I did not and they stuck) add 1 tbsp filling, leaving about 2-3 finger space in between

Add the second half you cut to the top, make sure you have no air in them as you cut

Cut with a ravioli stamp (stay tuned for possible GIVEAWAY of one)

They are too cute

Place on floured baking sheet until ready to boil

Fill stock pot with water, add salt and bring to boil, add 10 ravioli's at a time, once they start to float I let them cook another 3-5 minutes, then remove and drained

Add pasta sauce to a skillet, and add ravioli, cook tossing (be careful  not to spilt them, Daniel did twice) cook about 3 minutes just to warm sauce with them

There you have them! They are so amazing and so delicious!
