Method

  • 01
  • For pasta dough, process flour and eggs using a food processor until well combined. Turn onto a lightly floured surface, knead for 1 minute, then wrap in plastic wrap and set aside for 30 minutes to rest.

  • Roll pasta through a pasta machine, in 2 batches, starting at the widest setting and working through to the lowest. Using a 9cm cutter, cut rounds from the pasta. Place 1 tbsp of ricotta mixture in the centre of half the rounds and brush edges with remaining egg, then top with remaining pasta rounds and press edges to seal.
