My great friend Ben’s Pasta Dough Recipe for Homemade Ravioli

I have been friends with Ben for about a decade now and he posted on Facebook that he was making ravioli with a form, identical to one I bought to make it with. Just haven’t made it yet.

Here’s Ben’s pasta dough recipe with some of his images, used with his permission.

I just use a basic pasta dough recipe:

  • 2-1/4 cups of flour (either all-purpose or a 50/50 mix of all-purpose and semolina
  • 3 eggs and a pinch of salt.
  • Mix the flour into the eggs gradually until the texture is right; you may end up not using all of the flour.
  • I looked at 100’s of models from all over and liked this one below.
  • Below that is a homemade noodle cutter for hand rolled pasta dough.
  • A ravioli cutter from Italy
  • A crimper and pastry/pasta cutter
  • This awesome book on creating Artisan pasta.
