Easy Cheese Ravioli Recipe Recipe
By Earth of Maria
🔪Prep Time: 50 mins
👩🍳Cook Time: 5 mins
1/2 cup water
1/2 tsp salt
1 large egg yolk
1 3/4 cups plain flour
1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 cup basil
1/3 cup grated parmesan
1/4 cup grated cheddar
1/2 cup cream cheese
1Add the water, salt and an egg yolk to a mixing bowl and whisk together thoroughly using a fork. Gradually add the flour and mix continuously. When a shaggy dough forms, add in the olive oil and mix once again to incorporate.
2Transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface and knead for around 10 minutes, until a dough forms. The dough should have some moisture, but if it feels sticky, add a little bitt more flour.
3Cover and set aside for around 20 minutes.
4Make the filling. Start by finely chopping the basil and transferring it to a mixing bowl. Now add the parmesan, cheddar, cream cheese and a little bit of sugar. mix together thoroughly.
5Divide the dough in half. Roll one of the halves into a very thin sheet, around 1/8 inch in thickness. It make be necessary to flip it a few times, flouring the dough as you go to ensure it doesn't stick to the rolling pin.
6Remove the edges of the dough to make a square, and use a knife to carefully mark out 16 squares. Using a small spoon or ice cream scoop, place around 2 tbsp filling in the centre of each square.
7Roll out the other half of the dough, remove the edges to make a square, and place it on top of the dough sheet with the filling. Press it down around the edges to seal.
8Use a knife or a ravioli cutter to cut the dough into 16 ravioli. Press down the edges using a fork, and give the ravioli a dusting of flour so that they don't stick together during the cooking process.
9Bring a large saucepan of lightly salted water to a simmer. Place the ravioli into the water and cook for around 3-4 minutes, until they rise to the surface. Remove using a slotted spoon and serve immediately.

Earth of Maria
I’ve never been good at introductions because when they’re needed, I seem to forget every single interesting thing about myself. But I guess we’ll start with the basics. My name is Maria, and I am a twenty year old student from England. I study history at the University of Oxford and live in Brighton, but I was born in Russia and moved to the UK around ten years ago. I’m a vegan foodie (as you can probably tell by this blog), a lover of long walks and somewhere awkwardly between extrovert and introvert. Veganism and healthy eating are a huge part of my life, given that both have helped me overcome an unhealthy relationship with food. Finding balance took a lot of time and patience. But, as with many things in life, hard work proved 110% worth it! Whenever I’m not in the kitchen or working in my room, you’ll often find me at the gym, or at the grocery store looking for inspo for my next recipe.
