Ravioli from scratch

Eggs and flour to make dough. Basic and oh so simple right? Italians only put in yolks that makes the dough softer. doesn't make that much of a difference to me. For me, it's about the type of flour and the mix.

After mixing, the flour is divided into portions to be run through the pasta maker. I always struggle with the manual crank. This is why people buy ready-made pasta.

Preparing the ravioli stuffing is easy. I chose a mushroom mixture as I had the ingredients on hand. Mixed with lots of parmesan cheese.

Good enough to be eaten on it's own. Now to make ravioli.

2 pieces of dough and stuffing in between. This ravioli attachment is a dream. I have tried making ravioli by hand before and it wasn't so pretty.
