    AmyZoe's Note:

    My Mom made this, and it's delicious. She uses the ravioli filling in her lasagne which is heavenly. This recipe takes a little extra effort, but it's well worth it for a special evening.

    Ravioli Filling

    Noodle Dough

    Italian Tomato Sauce


    1. 1
      Make Italian Tomato Sauce: Puree undrained tomatoes in blender. In hot oil in large sauce pan, saute onion and garlic until golden-brown (abou 5 minutes). Add pureed tomato, tomato paste, 1 1/2 c water, the parsley sprigs, salt, sugar, oregano, basil, and pepper and mix well. Bring to boiling and reduce heat. Simmer, covered stirring occasionally, 1 hour.
    2. 2
      Meanwhile, make ravioli filling: In medium bowl, combine all filling ingredients and beat with wooden spoon until well blended. Set aside.
    3. 3
      Make noodle dough: Combine flour and 1/2 teaspoon salt in medium bowl and make well in center. Add eggs and water. Beat with wooden spoon until dough forms ball and leaves side of bowl.
    4. 4
      Turn onto floured surface. Knead until smooth and elastic--6 to 8 minutes. Divide into quarters.
    5. 5
      On lightly floured surface, roll one quarter (keep remaining dough covered with plastic film) into 17x13 inch rectangle. Cover with film.
    6. 6
      Roll a second quarter into a 17x13 inch rectangle. Drop filling by teaspoonfuls in 24 evenly spaced mounds on this dough rectangle (six lengthwise and four across).
    7. 7
      Lightly brush edges and spaces between mounds of filling with water. Place first dough rectangle on top and tirm edges with pastry wheel.
    8. 8
      Run pastry wheel between mounds of filling, to make 24 ravioli and press edges of each with times of fork to seal.
    9. 9
      Place on flour-covered sheet of waxed paper to dry--about 15 minutes. Turn once. Repeat with remaining dough and filling.
    10. 10

      This recipe wasn't what I expected. Maybe I did something wrong, because this was my first time every trying to make ravioli, but the cooked ravioli were tough and chewy and didn't have much flavor at all. I had a very hard time rolling the dough out to a large enough size to make 24 ravioli out of one sheet, it had to be rolled so thin it kept tearing. The dough also stuck to the counter when I tried to pick it up to put over the filling, despite the fact that it felt rather dry and there was flour all over the counter beneath it. Also, this made way too little dough for so much filling - I had loads left over. I could use it for lasagna or stuffed shells, I suppose, but it really doesn't taste that good so I wouldn't want to. I didn't use this sauce, I used my own tried-and-true recipe for that.
