How to make ravioli with fresh pasta

The  Staff Canteen

Hi my names Luke Holder and today I’m going to show you how to make a ravioli.

First, you want to fold the pasta in half, make sure you nip the two top corners so we have an indication of where the half way mark is. We then take whatever mix you’ve got and make two little mounds, it’s important to give each mound enough width the size of two fingers, so then we take the pasta to the halfway point and pull it over, now use the back of your hand to cup the mounds but at the same time trying to let the air inside the pasta escape, so for this we want a cutter, were using and 85 fruited cutter here.

First of all, we take the back of the cutter just rolling it round, just shaping the ravioli, then we turn it over making sure the filling is central, press down and twist and there we have our ravioli.
