Homemade spinach and cheese ravioli

This month for my Secret Recipe Club I was assigned Sarah's blog Curious Cusiniere.
I truly enjoyed going through many of her recipes as I found it very difficult to make up my mind. Sarah has a very versatile repertoire fanning across cuisines. I finally chose to prepare her latest dish Homemade ravioli with spinach and cheese. The only change I made was to substitute the flour with whole wheat.  I served it with almond basil pesto sauce. To my delight I managed to use homegrown spinach, basil and parsley. To be truthful all of it was devoured immediately after the picture was taken. Do check out Sarah's blog for more.
Homemade Ravioli with Spinach and Cheese
31/2 cups whole wheat flour
6 eggs
For filling
1/2 cup chopped fresh spinach
1/2 cup cottage cheese
1/2tsp oregano
1/2 tsp parsley
Salt to taste

  • Place the flour in a bowl, make a well in the centre. Crack the eggs into the well.
  • Mix well and knead to a dough.
  • Roll the dough on a well floured surface. 
  • Place the stuffing in intervals and fold across.
  • Seal and cut edges.
  • Cook the ravioli in water till it floats
  • Serve with almond basil pesto.
  • Enjoy!
