MUSHROOM RAVIOLI


INGREDIENTS:


Fresh pasta:

3 XL eggs, beaten

280g all-purpose flour

1 Tbsp olive oil

1 tsp salt


Filling:

400g Denny White Button Mushrooms

2 shallots, minced

4 cloves garlic, grated

2 Tbsp fresh sage, finely chopped

½ cup Parmesan, finely grated

Salt and pepper, to taste

Olive oil

Sauce:

100g butter

30g fresh sage leaves

200g Denny White Button Mushrooms, sliced

Salt and pepper, to taste

METHOD:

- Mix eggs, flour, oil, and salt in the bowl of a stand mixer.

- Knead with the dough hook attachment until pasta dough is smooth and elastic, about 10 minutes. Wrap dough tightly with cling film and let rest for at least 30 minutes.


- Pulse mushrooms for the filling in a food processor until fine.


- Heat a drizzle of olive oil in a pan. Add the shallots with a pinch of salt and cook until softened.


- Add the garlic, sage and mushrooms- cook until all the water has evaporated and the mushroom mixture is very dry. This is important as you do not want a watery filling.


- Remove filling from the heat and scatter in Parmesan. Mix well, adjust seasoning and set aside.


- Once the pasta has rested- divide dough into four even sections.


- Work with one section at a time, keeping the remaining sections tightly wrapped in plastic.


- Roll dough through a pasta machine until sheet is around 1.5mm thick.(On most pasta machines you want to end up on the 2nd to last setting / number 8.)

- Lay dough out on a lightly floured surface. Use a cookie cutter / tumbler to cut circles as close together as possible, twisting each time to cut all the way through.

- You want to cut 2 size circles. One slightly larger for the top to cover the filling.


- Using a piping bag, ziplock bag, or measuring spoon, add 1 teaspoon of filling to the center of the smaller disk. Lightly moisten edges of disk with pastry brush dipped in water.


- Place the second disk on top and seal while pressing out any air as you seal the edges.


- Transfer ravioli to a baking tray lined with baking paper. Cover with a clean kitchen towel while you finish making them. You can now ziplock & chill them until you are ready to cook & serve.


- Bring a large pot of salted water to the boil. Reduce to a simmer and add the ravioli.


- Cook ravioli for about 2 minutes until they float to the surface.


- Drain ravioli and reserve half a cup of pasta water for the sauce.


- While the pasta cooks- melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat until lightly golden and bubbling. Add the sage and sliced mushrooms. Cook until the butter is a deep golden brown and the mushrooms are cooked. Season with salt and pepper.


- Add cooked ravioli to buttery mushrooms along with a splash of pasta cooking water.

Toss them in the buttery sauce until sauce is silky and coats the ravioli.


- Serve straight away with plenty of freshly ground black pepper and a sprinkle of Parmesan.
