Experiences: Cooking Homemade Mushroom Ricotta Ravioli in Butter-Sage Sauce With Master Chef Winner Luca Manfé Sponsored by Melrie Jewelry
original post 11/19/2020
Step 1: Make the Pasta Dough
It's best if you can get 00 pasta flour and a ratio of 100 grams to 1 large egg is generally a good place to start. (digital kitchen scales are the best) I guess making dough is a lot about how it feels and in time you will know if you need to add a bit more flour, an extra egg, or a few drops of water to get the consistency just right. The kneading took at least 15 minutes and then we wrapped up the ball of dough and let it rest at room temperature while preparing everything else.
Step 2: Make The Mushroom Ricotta Filling
Olive oil and a ton of sliced mushrooms went in a sauté pan with salt and pepper. Shallots, thyme, and garlic were added later followed by white wine. The mixture now needed to be chopped very finely. Our class didn't all have food processors, so we did the rustic, Italian grandma style chop on alarge cutting board with a good knife. Next time I would probably just save the time and use the food processor. Now we added ricotta, fresh grated parmesan, and parsley and did a final seasoning (salt + pepper) of the filling. then added one egg to the mix and put it in a pastry bag!
Step 3: Making The Ravioli
Clamp your pasta machine to your counter or table and make sure there is enough space for the dough you're rolling out! You'll want to start on the widest setting on the machine and work your way through the thinner settings. Work with a small piece of dough and keep the rest tightly covered so it doesn't dry out. You may need to add a dusting of flour in between to prevent the dough from sticking. Once the dough is rolled out, grab your pastry bag and squeeze filling along half of the dough, at least 1 inch apart. Brush pasta with whisked egg yoke and fold over the other half, carefully pressing the dough together and removing air pockets as you go. Use a cookie cutter, ring mold, or ravioli cutter to cut out each ravioli and put them on a baking sheet lined with parchment (or silpat) and sprinkled with semolina flour and cover with a kitchen towel while you keep working.
Step 4: Cooking The Ravioli
In a large pot with salted, boiling water, add raviolis in batches and cook until they float to the top (about 90 seconds or around 3 minutes if frozen)
Step 5: Making The Butter-Sage Sauce
In a large sauté pan, add a few tablespoons of butter, sage leaves, and a couple ladles of pasta water, bring to a simmer and season with salt. As the raviolis boil, scoop them out with a slotted spoon and add them to the sauce with some more butter and a bit more pasta water if needed.You're just going to cook them and move them around until the sauce has covered them nicely! Serve with some grated Parm!
Bonus: The Egg Filled Ravioli!
Make a dip in the filling with your thumb and try to plop in a single egg yolk. If you can seal the ravioli well and cook it just right, when you slice it open you'll get a perfect runny egg to add richness to the sauce!

One of my favorite ways to make travel more accessible is leveraging credit card rewards for travel.
I want you to travel for free too. So I'm sharing this sign up bonus on a card I personally use!
How many flights can 60,000 airline miles get you?
Every airline's program works differently and values points differently. But since we are talking about united airlines, let me give you a first hand example.
I recently booked 2 flights between the US and Europe for 58,000 United Miles
So it is reasonable that you can find flights to Europe and back with your sign up bonus, let alone domestic flights! Slick, right?
What's your favorite travel credit card?
Our favorite travel credit cards can be found on our Best Travel Credit Cards page. But when we aren't eligible for those bonuses, we always have a Chase United Card because the miles go far internationally!
We would love to hear what your favorite travel credit card is or your favorite trip where you got free flights from a travel credit card! :)

Plate it up! Hello Fresh Spicy Maple Chicken Recipe Review
Drizzle the maple syrup/crushed pepper mixture over the chicken and enjoy!
This recipe took exactly 40 minutes from start to final plating as seen below and most of it is hands off - one tray popped in the oven, one pot to boil potatoes. It came together really quickly and provided a hearty, balanced, and flavorful meal during a busy day! As it was cooked in a convention oven, I adjusted the temperature to be 25 degrees lower which worked well. The top still got a little toasty, but it all tasted great! This hello fresh recipe is a winner!

Ranking: 4/4 - Love It!
Stroopwafels will always remind me of travel as I first tried them on United Airlines. They are like two very thin waffles with caramel in the center. If you pop them on top of your coffee or tea it will melt the caramel a little!
