A perfect dish for Valentine's Day, an anniversary or when you want to show someone how much you care.


olive oil
shallots, chopped
2 c
cooked lobster meat, chopped roughly from 3- 1lb. lobster (set aside ¼ cup or so of lobster meat for the sauce),
2 pinch
1/2 lb
ricotta cheese
3-4 Tbsp
parmigiano-reggiano, grated
salt and pepper
pasta sheets - or make your own!
1 c
semolina flour
1 c
all purpose flour
2 large
1 Tbsp
olive oil, extra virgin
olive oil, extra virgin
mushrooms handful (optional, I like them )
1/4 c
lobster meat
1 c
cream (warm in microwave so it won't curdle)
1/2 c
tomato sauce
a few basil leaves chopped
salt and pepper to taste

Directions Step-By-Step

Cook shallots in olive oil on medium high heat.
Once the shallots have softened, add lobster meat and parsley. Take the pan off the heat and mix in the ricotta and Parmesan. Taste filling and season with salt and pepper to taste.
On a pasta sheet laid out on the counter, add about a tablespoon or so of filling a couple of inches apart. (I was able to make about 12 ravioli's on one sheet but it depends on the size of your pasta sheet.) Wet with egg wash (1 egg and a T Water) the pasta in between the filling creating the borders of the ravioli's so they seal properly.
Top off with another pasta sheet.
Around each mound of filling, press out on the wet area, making sure there are no air pockets in the filling. Cut each ravioli out with a pizza roller.
Ensure the ravioli's are well sealed again (or they will open up in the water when cooking).
In a large pot of boiling water, cook the ravioli's for 7-8 minutes until they float up. (If you are lucky enough to have extra, lay them individually on a baking sheet and freeze before cooking them. When they are frozen, place them in a sealed plastic bag.)
LOBSTER SAUCE - for 4 servings
If you want to make this sauce even more lobster-ey, cook the shells in the sauce and strain out.Cook shallots and garlic in oil.
Add mushroom slices and cook on high heat.
When the mushrooms have softened, add lobster meat, tomato sauce and heated cream.Turn down the heat and let the sauce simmer until it has slightly thickened.
Add salt and pepper to taste.
Add basil last.
For the dough: Sift the flours and a pinch of salt into a bowl. Whisk together the eggs, oil, and 2 tablespoons water in a separate bowl. Pour the flour mixture onto a clean dry work surface and form a small well in the center. Pour half of the egg mixture into the well and, using a fork, begin to incorporate the flour into the egg mixture. Once absorbed, incorporate the remaining egg mixture and knead by hand until all of the liquid is absorbed, 5 to 6 minutes, flouring your work surface as needed to ensure the dough doesn't stick. Roll the dough into a ball, cover with plastic wrap, and let rest in the refrigerator for 1 hour.

I was looking online for a lobster ravioli recipe and this popped up. I should have just looked here first. This sounds just wonderful and I can't wait to try it. I'm just not sure about cooking the lobster. I wonder if you can buy it already cooked? Thanks for this posting Michelle. I'll let you know how it turns out.

Yes, this would go good with shrimp, scallops or almost any seafood. I live on Cape Cod Massachusetts. My husband dives for lobsters every summer. Funny story, I made my own lobster ravioli and I did freeze 3 dozen so I would have so for the winter. lol My garage freezer stopped working when the temp outside went down to 10 degrees. Went out to get so ravioli lol they were all mush. Had to through them away. Your recipe sound wonderful and I will be trying it this coming summer. Thanks

Your recipe sounds delightful! Thanks for sharing it. Often I cheat with the pasta dough section, and use wonton wrappers in place of pasta dough ~ they still taste delicious. Place one down, put scoop of filling in center, moisten edges to seal, top with 2nd wrapper and rub around edges to secure seal. Couldn't be easier.

I am wondering if you can stuff the Ravioli with raw Lobster and when it boils will that cook the lobster inside the pasta. I hate overcooked shell fish and sea food.
