Delicious homemade raviolis with sweet pears and spicy blue cheese covered in a parmesan cheese sauce with pistachios. Comfort food to the max.
Ingredients for 2 pers.:
- For the dough:
- 200 g pasta flour
- 2 eggs
- For the filling:
- 2 pears
- 3 tbsp mascarpone
- 2 tbsp gorgonzola
- For the sauce:
- parmesan cheese
- 100 ml cream
How to prepare it:
Mix the pasta flour, egg and a pinch of salt together in the food processor until a soft dough ball forms.
Put the dough in the fridge and start with the filling.
Peel the pears and cut them into small pieces. Put a frying pan on the heat and put in the pears fry the pears until they have softened well. Now add the mascarpone and the gorgonzola. Stir well until both cheeses have melted. Set the pan aside and allow the filling to cool.
Pollinate a piece of your kitchen sink with flour and roll two large pieces of your pasta dough. Pass the rags through the lasagna level of your pasta machine three times, making sure the rags are wide enough to make the raviolis. I have a ravioli shape in which I can immediately make 12 raviolis. This one is ideal and if you are planning to make ravioli more often, I would recommend this one. Pollinate the ravioli shape (if necessary) with flour and roll the first piece of dough over it, make sure that the patch covers the shape sufficiently.
Grate the parmesan and finely chop the pistachios.
Fill the molds with the pear-blue cheese mixture. When they are all filled, put the second piece of dough over them. Now roll the rolling pin over the ravioli shape and make sure that all sides stick together well. Carefully remove the raviolis from the tin.
Put a pan of water on the heat. As soon as the water boils, add some salt and some olive oil. Then the ravioli’s can be put in the boiling broth. They should cook for about 5 to 6 minutes.
Meanwhile, put a small saucepan on the heat and heat the cream. Melt the parmesan cheese through the cream.
Remove the raviolis from the water and place them on a plate. Serve a large scoop of the cheese sauce and sprinkle the chopped pistachios over it.
