Mushroom Ravioli with Tomatoes is a simple Italian dish that is so full of flavour. The homemade ravioli is perfect as you can adjust the ingredients. While the tomatoes and are soft yet with a little bit. Baking them in balsamic vinegar adds the slight acidic kick it needs to make it a perfectly balanced recipe. I use round tomatoes as they hold the flavours and don’t turn into a mulch. Serve as a main course. I cheat but you can make your homemade pasta.

Instructions

Making the Sauce

  • Preheat oven to 425°.
  • Cut the tomatoes into small chunks (you can remove the seeds if you wish but I don’t.
  • Place the tomatoes, shallots on an lightly oiled baking tray.
  • Drizzle the tomatoes and shallots with a little olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper.
  • Place in the oven and bake for about 30 minutes.
  • Remove form the oven and drizzle with the remaining olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper and retunrn to the oven for a further 10 minutes.
  • Whilst the tomatoes are baking, prepare and cook the ravioli.

Making the Ravioli

  • Place a frying pan over a medium, high heat and add the olive oil. Once hot, add the shallots and sauté until soft.
  • Add the mushrooms and cook until soft.
  • Add the garlic and sprig of thyme and season with salt and pepper. Fry for a few minutes without letting the garlic burn.
  • Remove the mixture from the heat and leave to cool.
  • When cool, place the mushroom mixture into a food processor together with the ricotta and parmesan and blend. I like the consistency to be smooth but chunkier is also ok.
  • I use premade Lasagna sheets as its simpler and far easier. The lasagne sheets can be rolled to the size you need, and any leftovers stored in the fridge.
  • Sprinkle flour over a clean level worktop
  • Add the pastry and roll out into a rectangular shape making sure the pasta is about 1/8th of an inch in thickness. This is to make sure the ravioli is light and delicate instead of heavy.
  • You will be folding one half of the pasta over the other half lengthways.
  • Add one heaped tablespoon of the cooled mushroom mixture every inch until you reach the end.
  • When you portioned the mixture, carefully fold the other half of the pasta over the portions.
  • Using your fingers gently press the pasta around the filling removing all of the air.
  • Using a pasta wheel (has little flutes) cut midway between each ravioli making it look nice.
  • Place the prepared ravioli to one side and sprinkle with semolina for extra flavour and to prevent sticking.
  • When they are all ready, place a large pan of salted water over a high heat and bring to the boil. When boiling add the ravioli in batches and cook for about 4 minutes.
  • Serve with the sauce and a grating of fresh parmesan.
