Method

For the Pasta

  3. Put the dough on a table and knead well with both hands until the dough is smooth and elastic, rolling it out using a rolling pin if needed.
For the Filling
  1. mix the ricotta, mozzarella, fresh tomatoes, olives and Parmesan, adding a pinch of oregano, salt and pepper.
For the Sauce
  1. Inside a mixer put the ingredients in the following order: basil, extra virgin oil, Parmigiano, salt and garlic. Mix all until the ingredients turn into a creamy and minced sauce.
  2. Toast the pine nuts for about 5 â- 10
  3. Roll the pasta to as thin as possible and using a pasta cutter or a knife, gently cut into squares.
  4. Spoon out a teaspoon of the filling into the centre of each pasta square.
For the Ravioli
  1. Carefully fold each pasta square diagonally and pinch the edges until closed. Then bring the corners together with your fingers and squeeze together.
  2. Cook the ravioli in a large saucepan of lightly salted boiling water and simmer gently for 4 minutes, avoiding overcooking.
  3. Drain the ravioli thoroughly and finish by serving with the pesto sauce on top. Finally add the toasted pine nuts.
