Lemony herbed ravioli with white with butter sauce and green peas —Erin Pace Stegman

What You'll Need
  • Pasta
  • 1000 grams 0.0 flour
  • 10 egg yolks
  • 3 eggs
  • plastic wrap
  • semolina for dusting
  • sea salt for boiling water
  • Ricotta filling and sauce
  • 750 grams ricotta
  • 2 cups grated parmesan
  • 3 lemon zest and juice
  • 3 bunches chopped fresh herbs - basil, parsley, mint
  • Splash olive oil
  • 2 egg yolks
  • salt and better to taste
  • salted butter
  • 1 cup white wine
  • 1/2 cup pasta water
  • 1.5 cups green peas
  • pecorino, herbs and cracked black pepper for dusting
  1. Pasta
  2. Begin by adding flour to a wide bowl and make a hole/valley in the center. Whisk eggs in the hole until smooth, then gradually incorporate flour little by little (focus on keeping the egg mixture as smooth as possible). Continue to add more flour until you can no longer use a whisk/fork. Dust your hands with flour and begin to knead and incorporate more flour until the dough isn't sticky. Divide into baseball sized balls, wrap with plastic wrap, leave on counter for at least 30 minutes.
  3. Dust a clean kitchen counter with semolina flour. Unwrap the dough and use a rolling pin to flatten the dough so it can get spun through a pasta maker. Run the pasta through the maker starting wish size 0 until size 7. Let the dough rest on the counter until you've made all the sheets.
  1. Ricotta filling and sauce
  2. Ricotta filling- combine all ingredients and place in a piping bag until read to use. Fold the pasta sheet in half lengthwise to create a crease, then open again. Pipe grape sized amounts of filling onto the bottom half of the pasta sheets 1-2 fingers apart. Use egg wash to coat edges to ensure the sheets stick together. Fold the upper half of the sheet over the side with ricotta and firmly press starting from the center. Avoid air pockets so the ravioli doesn't pop in the boiling water. Use ravioli stamps or a ravioli roller to get delicate edges. Dust with flour and place on counter until ready to boil.
  3. Add to salted water at a gentle boil. Remove with a slotted spoon when float to top. Reserve some pasta water.
  4. Simmer butter and wine until alcohol cooks off. Add frozen green peas and pasta water. Stir in some pecorino for extra deliciousness.
  5. Combine ravioli and sauce in a large pot or bowl with curved edges. Do not use utensils to stir, simply move the pot in circular motions until the sauce coats all ravioli. Serve with more pecorino, cracked pepper and fresh herbs.

you have reminded me of a great dish i once had on the outskirts of providence. in mimicing them i would fill the ravioli with a parmesan pea puree and toss them w/reduced cream, mint leaves and pepper.
