How to make it

  • For the pasta

  • Simply place the flour on a clean surface and make a well in the middle.
  • Pour in the beaten eggs and slowly combine.
  • Add the oil as required to form a firm ball of dough, and knead until smooth.
  • Wrap the dough in clingfilm and rest whilst you make the filling.
  • For the spinach and ricotta filling

  • Place all ingredients in a bowl and mash together with a fork, adding a little olive oil if needed.
  • For the bean pate filling

  • Cook the broad beans in boiling water for 8-10 minutes until tender. Push them out of their skins, and place in a food processor.
  • Blend the beans with the remaining ingredients.
  • To make the ravioli

  • Roll out the dough on a floured surface as thin as it will go (a millimetre or two).
  • Use a round cutter (3-4 inches diameter) to cut out pasta shapes. Keep the pasta rounds under a damp teatowel to prevent them drying out before use.
  • Using a teaspoon, place your desired filling on a round, brush the edges of the pasta with water, and stick another round ontop. Repeat until you have used up all your pasta!
  • Cook in boiling water for 4-8 minutes, depending on the thickness of your pasta and serve with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil.

    Thanks for all the great replies! The cutter I used was 3 inches diameter, and really needed to be that big to fit a nice amount of filling inside. They might appear a bit big on the photo as it was taken on a small plate before I cooked them!

    Those are awful large ravioli. Have some smaller round cutters that I would like to try first, if I can find the pasta flour.
