Homemade pasta is filled with a mixture of mushrooms, spinach, cream cheese, Parmesan and mozzarella, then served with a chive butter sauce. It's the perfect Italian starter or main course.
When re-rolling the pasta scraps, it really helps to moisten both sides of the dough to avoid toughness.
Parmesan cheese is not truly vegetarian, as it contains animal rennet. To make this dish 100% vegetarian, omit the cheese or find a suitable vegetarian substitute made without animal rennet. In supermarkets look for the 'parmesan style hard cheeses' which are suitable for vegetarians.
Very yummy! I was already pressed for time not having a ravioli maker and I really didn't feel like making homemade dough so I bought lasagna noodles (the dough kind in the refrigerated section) cut them into squares and stuffed them and it turned out great! - 03 Jul 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Absolutely love it! I skipped the mushrooms (hubby won't eat them) and I added chardonnay and lemon juice to the sauce. Came out perfect. I'm making more this weekend. - 29 Oct 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Excellent recipe! Incredible flavor! My wife and I still talk about how good the raviolis were. With a pasta roller and a ravioli mold, it didn't even take that long. The only thing I added was I blended some spinach to the egg before adding to the flour, which gave the ravioli's a really nice gren color. Next time (and there will definitely be a next time), I think I'll cut back on the cayenne pepper, so I can enjoy the flavor of the filling more. Anyway, kudos on a great recipe! - 20 Jun 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
