  • Place the spinach in a large pot over moderate heat with only the water clinging to the leaves after washing.
  • Cover the pot and steam the spinach, stirring occasionally, until wilted and tender, about 8 minutes.
  • Squeeze out as much water as possible and chop finely.
  • Combine with all remaining ingredients except the pasta and mix thoroughly.
  • Divide the dough for the pasta into six equal portions and roll to the thinnest setting on the pasta machine.
  • Place a teaspoon (5 ml) of the filling in rows at 2-inch (5 cm) intervals on three of the strips of pasta.
  • Moisten the dough in between the stuffing with water, using a pastry brush or your finger.
  • Place the remaining strips of dough over the filling and press down around the filling, eliminating as much air as possible from inside the ravioli.
  • Use a knife or fluted pastry wheel to cut into individual ravioli.
  • Press the edges of each to seal completely.
  • Place the ravioli on lightly floured dish towels, making sure they don't touch each other.
  • Turn every half hour if not using immediately to ensure the dry evenly on both sides.
  • Cook within 4 hours, or freeze or refrigerate for future use.
  • Boil in at least 4 quarts (4 L) of salted water for 3 to 5 minutes, until the pasta is tender.
  • Remove with a slotted spoon and serve immediately.
