Equipment

Pasta Maker (Optional)

Ingredients

  • 2 ⅓ cups All-Purpose Flour
  • ½ cup Cocoa Powder
  • 3 Large Eggs
  • cup Water
  • Ricotta Filling recipe below
  • Cream Liqueur Sauce recipe below OR
  • Raspberry Sauce recipe below

Instructions

  • Combine flour, cocoa and eggs in food processor until fully incorporated.
  • Slowly stream ⅓ cup (75 ml) water into the mix – while running – until dough comes together. You may not need the whole amount of water.
  • Knead dough until smooth, wrap tightly in plastic wrap, allow to rest for 1 hour.
  • Roll dough as thin as possible – about 1/16″ of an inch. Having a pasta machine for this is handy, but it can be rolled with a rolling pin… and a bit of patience!
  • Use a round cookie cutter or rim of a glass – 2.5 – 3″ or so – to cut rounds from the dough.
  • Mound 1-2 teaspoon (5-10 ml)of filling into the middle of a round, top with another round.
  • Carefully seal the edges by running a wet finger around the inner edge of a round, then pinching the edges together around the entire seam. Alternatively, use a ravioli or pierogi maker.
  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Gently add ravioli to boiling water, one at a time, about 6 to a batch. Ravioli has finished cooking when they float to the surface of the water.
  • Use a slotted spoon to remove cooked ravioli from the water, dip in cool water to halt the cooking process.
  • Serve warm or cold, dusted with powdered sugar or drizzled with sauce.

Notes

* For this photo shoot, I had used Chambord liqueur and fresh raspberries. Almost any fruity liqueur would work; this sauce is especially good with Grand Marnier, Chambord, or Limoncello. As for berries, use any you’d like – solo or in combination with other berries.
For EXTRA special presentation, whip up some fresh whipped cream. I’ll use about 1 cup of heavy cream and 2 tablespoon sugar. Once it reaches the desired consistency, add in a couple tablespoon of your favorite liqueur – for this shoot, we used Amaretto, to mirror the filling flavor.
Garnish with fresh berries and mint leaves, for a little pop of color.
