How to make Ravioli with Basil Sauce

  1. For making pasta dough, combine all the ingredients and make a smooth but little sticky dough using water. Cover it and keep it in the refrigerator for 1 hour to chill.
  2. For making stuffing, grate potatoes and add both the cheeses and all the other ingredients. If you feel the stuffing is still a bit sticky then you can add some more bread crumbs. Mix and keep it in the refrigerator to cool.
  3. For making basil sauce, heat oil in a pan and add pureed tomatoes. Boil for 3 minutes and then add pizza sauce and all the other ingredients as well. Cook for 2 minutes and turn off the heat.
  4. Take out the dough and make small balls out of it. Sprinkle flour on rolling surface and some over the dough ball and using a rolling pin roll the ball into a circle of about 3mm width.
  5. Using a drinking glass, cut a circle out of it. Place the rolled pastas under a damp cloth. Make more pastas like this.
  6. For assembling the raviolis, take one pasta circle and place 1 tablespoon of filling in the center of it. Brush some water on the outside of the filling and place the other pasta sheet on top and press lightly both of the sides to stick them.
  7. Make all the raviolis like this. Heat enough water in a big vessel and add 1/2 teaspoon salt to it. Once it starts boiling, reduce the flame to low-medium and put the raviolis in it. Cook them until they turn a bit hard and come on top of the water.
  8. While serving, pour some sauce on a plate and place raviolis on top. Sprinkle some dried basil and enjoy! Buon appetito!

My Tip:

You can even add some basil to the boiling water to give it an even more enhanced basil flavor!
