Filling

  • 300g fresh spinach
  • 250g ricotta cheese
  • 50g Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 30g (2 tbsp) pine nuts, roasted
  • Nutmeg, to taste
  • Extra: egg white, a brush

Sage butter

  • 50g butter
  • 10 sage leaves, chopped
  • 50ml (3 tbsp + 1 tsp) cream
  • 50g Parmesan cheese
  • Ground black pepper, to taste

Directions:

  1. Bring a large pan of salted water to a boil and blanch the spinach by cooking for 5 seconds, draining, refreshing with cold water and draining again.
  2. Finely chop the spinach and combine with the filling ingredients.
  3. Lay half of the pasta sheets on a flat surface and place one heaped teaspoon of the filling onto each sheet of pasta. Brush the edges of the pasta with egg white and place another pasta sheet on top, using a fork to seal the edges to form an envelope.
  4. Prepare the sage butter. Melt the butter in a saucepan on a low heat. Add the sage, sea salt and cream and simmer for a few seconds. Stir in the cheese until melted. Season.
  5. Cook the ravioli ready in 6-8 minutes. Serve directly topped with the sage butter.
