How to Make Sausage & cheese ravioli with sauce

Step-by-Step

  1. STUFFING: Scramble up & brown sausage. Let cool, mix with ricotta, provolone, parm, egg, and garlic powder.
  2. DOUGH:
    DOUGH:
    Place flour in a large semi flat bowl or on counter top, make a well in the center, add salt and egg & pepper, opt. Mix together with your fingers till well incorporated. Add a little water at a time mixing with hand till dough starts to stick together. Knead for about 5 min. Form into a ball, wrap tightly in saran wrap. Let rest for at least 30 min. After dough has rested, cut into 4 quarters, roll each quarter out starting with the widest setting on your roller. Fold in half and send through roller again. Now adjust roller to the next smallest setting. Continue this process until you have sent dough through the smallest setting. The pasta should be thin enough that you can see the form of your hand through it.
  3. Place a heaping tsp of filling in center of dough strip, leaving about 2" on either side of stuffing. Brush dough around stuffing with water. Now place second strip of dough on top or fold dough over. Seal all four sides making sure all air is out of ravioli pockets. Cut in between each ravioli and seal all edges using finger or fork. Place on parchment paper lined cookie sheet, refrigerate or freeze ravioli till needed. When ready to cook, bring pot salted water to a boil, place a few ravioli in at a time, boil for 5-10 min. depending on size of ravioli, remove, place on parchment paper lined pan.
  4. SAUCE: Place canned diced tomatoes, lemon juice and sugar in food processor, slightly puree to remove chunks. In a sauce pan saute onions, garlic and mushrooms and chopped basil in one stick of melted butter till tender. Add pureed tomatoes and simmer for about 10-15 min.
  5. While sauce is making, melt one stick of butter in skillet, brown your boiled ravioli. Place browned ravioli on plate, top with sauce.
