How to make ricotta and ham ravioli
Place the flour in a bowl or on a surface with the eggs in the center
With your fingertips, start kneading from the center by breaking the eggs and gradually incorporating the flour
Knead for a long time adding a teaspoon of oil
until you get a smooth and elastic dough then cover the egg pasta with a clean cloth and let it rest for 30 minutes
Now prepare the filling by mincing the sweet raw ham and mixing it with the ricotta, parmesan, nutmeg and a pinch of salt.
Take the pastry back and divide it into 4 smaller pieces
Flatten a piece of dough at a time with a rolling pin, then pass it into the pasta machine by putting the roller set in the widest thickness.
Once passed, fold it in half and pass it again by setting the roller in the thinnest thickness
Place the sheets obtained on a surface alternating with a little flour between one sheet and the other
Let's go now to make the ravioli
On a sheet of dough, arrange piles of filling
Then cover with another sheet of the same size and make the edges adhere well
With a pastry wheel, cut squares that will be your ravioli
Gradually place the ravioli obtained on a lightly floured surface
Cook the pasta in abundant salted water for 8/10 minutes
Then lift them with a slotted spoon, pour them into the pan with the sauce and let them flavor
Serve the ravioli with ricotta and raw ham
