Valentine Heart Ravioli

Here's an easy Valentine's  Day recipe, to make for your sweetheart.  Start with your favorite ravioli filling recipe, the one we are using here is a simple mixture of Ricotta, Parmesan, Spinach, Egg, Salt and Pepper.

Place filling on your broad sheets of pasta, and use a heart shaped cookie cutter make sure your filling will fit within the ravioli.  Dip your fingers in an egg wash and moisten the pasta around your ravioli filling, then place your top layer of pasta over your filling and seal the raviolis.  Then use the cookie cutter to cut out your individual ravioli.

Pasta is a simple and easy dish for you to make from scratch at home.  Sign up for one of our cooking classes to learn how to make pasta.  If you don't have time to make your own pasta, you can use store bought won-ton wrappers, to create nearly the same effect.

Use the cutter and cut out your hearts and then place stuffing on the bottom layer.

With your finger tips moisten the edges and then seal the top layer.

The heart shaped ravioli are now ready to cook, place in a pot of boiling salted water and cook for 3 to 4 minutes, or until the hearts float to the top of the pot.  Remove ravioli and serve with your favorite sauce.
