HOMEMADE RAVIOLIS FOR RALPHIE AND THE
1 tsp. salt
12 c. sifted flour
Take the flour and form a bowl on the table. Add eggs and
salt. Beat the eggs well with a fork and gradually start to pull the flour
in. Soon it is time to get the hands in there and mix. It should be real
yellow and very smooth when all blended you may have to knead it like bread
dough. When mixed, rub dough all over with olive oil and let sit, covered
with a towel, for about an hour. You are ready to roll. It is very elastic
and a pasta machine is great. Roll the dough until you feel it is thin
enough I usually put my hand under and if I can see the shape of my hand it
is thin enough.
4 lbs. Ricotta cheese
salt to taste
pepper to taste
1-2 bunches parsley (or to taste), chopped
ingredients, and voila make a ravioli. I place on the counter on a white sheet
which is lightly floured and after a bit turn them over to dry on both sides.
Sometimes I flash freeze them so when they are place in a bag they do not stick
together. You should get 125 or so. We like them on the bigger side.
Note: Good Luck and think of Ralphie when you make them. Argia, Mother of

Note: I made this for my 3 sons for Christmas one year and put them

the blue dish empty and I will return it full" Sure enough every couple
weeks one or the other would return the empty dish.....Fred's dish came in
on a regular weekly schedule. He really liked it.
