How to Make Cheese Pasta Roll with Tomato Sauce


  • 1** Bouquet garni is a cheesecloth bag (or some other porous material) in which you've put some rosemary, thyme, bay leaf, and crushed peppercorns. There is no rule for how much of each you'd use.
  • 2Tomato Sauce: To prepare the tomatoes, drop them briefly into boiling water, then remove and plunge them into cold water and peel. Remove the seeds and chop the tomatoes.
  • 3Melt butter in a saute pan and add minced shallots. Saute, covered, for 5 minutes over low heat.
  • 4Add tomatoes and bouquet garni.
  • 5Season to taste.
  • 6Cook covered over medium heat for 30 minutes.
  • 7Remove shallots and bouquet garni, then puree.
  • 8Reserve sauce.
  • 9Pasta Roll: In a saute pan, melt the butter and add the diced ham and scallions.
  • 10Cook over medium heat for about 2 minutes until scallions are soft.
  • 11Beat the cream cheese, parmesan cheese, ricotta cheese, and pepper together until smooth.
  • 12Add the sauteed ham and scallions to the cheese mixture; then add eggs, and mix well.
  • 13Cover and refrigerate at least 2 - 3 hours.
  • 14Spread half of the filling on one of the pasta sheets - leaving a half-inch border around the edges.
  • 15Brush the border with a little melted butter.
  • 16Place a layer of sliced Prosciutto to cover the filling mixture then beginning at one of the short ends of the pasta, roll it up.
  • 17Do not roll too loosely or the poaching liquid may seep into the cheese/meat mixture.
  • 18Wrap roll in a double thickness of cheesecloth and tie each end securely with string.
  • 19Repeat for second pasta sheet.
  • 20Fill a large saute pan with chicken stock.
  • 21Bring the stock to a boil and add pasta rolls.
  • 22Reduce the heat to simmer and cook gently, turning occasionally, for 25 minutes.
  • 23Drain and cool before removing string and cheesecloth.
  • 24Cut each roll in half-inch thick slices.
  • 25Pour some of the tomato sauce into a pool on the bottom of individual serving plates and arrange the slices on the plates.
  • 26Garnish with chopped chives.
  • 27Serve warm or at room temperature.
