Welcome to your on-demand cooking experience! In this class, we’ll walk you through each step to create our signature ricotta ravioli from start to finish, with our Truffle Carpaccio and a classic Cacio e Pepe sauce. This recipe will teach you how to make, knead, and fold pasta dough from scratch, as well as a great go-to pasta sauce that’s perfect for everything from weeknight meals to celebratory dinner parties. You’re sure to make something truly delicious and learn a ton of culinary skills along the way! Please follow the tabs to the left to find the recipe, shopping list, culinary tips from the Chef, wine pairing suggestions, and your on-demand video.
Roll out your ravioli dough to be as thin as possible. The dough will absorb water as it boils, so a thin, delicate dough will make the resulting texture more pleasant.
Kneading is a crucial step to developing the gluten in your pasta dough. Make sure to take your time and knead until smooth and silky (and no need to worry about over kneading your dough, especially if you’re kneading by hand).
Knife maintenance is huge—you always want your knife arsenal to be well-sharpened. Use a honing steel between sharpening. We recommend a whetstone or oil-based stone for sharpening. Or, you can take them to a professional knife shop (we love Bernal Cutlery). Believe it or not, you're more likely to injure yourself on a dull knife than a sharp one!
When stirring the cooked raviolis in their sauce, be sure to do so gently—they’re fragile!
