Italian cuisine has developed through centuries of social and political changes, with roots stretching to antiquity.  Italian cuisine is simple and a number of dishes having only four to eight ingredients.  They rely mostly on the quality of ingredients rather than elaborate preparation.
Noteworthy changes in Italian cuisine happened with the discovery of the New World and the introduction of potatoes, tomatoes, bell peppers and maize, which are now an integral part of this cuisine.  Italian cuisine is known for its regional diversity each with a distinct taste.  This cuisine today is probably one of the most popular in the world.

  • butter 3 tablespoons

  • sage leaves 4-5

Method

Step 1

For the pasta dough, take refined flour, semolina, and salt in a large bowl. Break the eggs and separate the yolks and add them to the bowl, add sufficient water and mix well. Knead to stiff dough. Add olive oil and knead again till well combined. Cover with a damp muslin cloth and set aside to rest for 30-35 minutes.

Step 2

For the stuffing, in a bowl, add spinach, ricotta, crushed black peppercorns, onion powder, garlic flakes, nutmeg powder, salt, and mix well. Sprinkle parmesan and mix well. Set aside.

Step 3

Dust the worktop with flour, divide the dough into two portions, and roll the dough into oblong shape. Set the pasta machine to the lowest setting and dust with flour. Insert the dough into it, turn the handle with one hand and hold the dough coming through the machine with the other.

Step 4

Change to the next setting and repeat the process 3-4 times. Once the pasta has reached the desired thickness, dust flour on the worktop and place the prepared sheet on it. Add a portion of the prepared stuffing at equal intervals along half of the pasta sheet, brush egg wash around the filling.

Step 5

Lay the remaining layer of the pasta sheet on top and press down around each filling portion with a cookie cutter. Dust with flour and place the prepared pasta on it and set aside.

Step 6

Heat sufficient water in a deep pan, add salt, drizzle olive oil and let the water come to a boil. Drop in the prepared pasta in the boiling water and cook till they float on the surface. Strain and set aside.

Step 7

For the sauce, heat butter in a non-stick pan, tear sage leaves and add to the pan, add the cooked ravioli and gently toss to coat. Garnish with micro greens and serve hot.
