Homemade Almond Flour Ravioli with creamy pesto alfredo sauce.
First off! Must admit. This recipe was supposed to be tortellini...but ya girl didn’t look up how to make the shape for tortellini before attempting it.... realized halfway through that I, in fact, do not know how to make that shape. But I do know how to make your standard ravioli.
Soooooo here we are. If you try making this, and want it to be tortellini instead of ravioli shape, look up how to make the shape for it, I found an awesome video on YouTube of an OG Italian man making it- that I will refer to next time.
But for now: RAVIOLI it is :)
Almond Flour Ravioli
Recipe by: The Daily Kale
1 cup almond flour (@anthonysgoods )
1 tbsp xanthan gum
1 tbsp psyllium husk powder
Pinch of salt and black pepper
Pinch of garlic powder
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp water
In a bowl, stir all of the dry ingredients together. Then make a small space in the middle and pour in the olive oil, water and then the egg and stir it together until combined. With wet hands, knead the dough together until it’s combined. And then make a ball.
Take two big pieces of parchment paper and place the ball in between. Using a rolling pen roll out the dough as thin as you can get it, and into a rectangle shape. With a pizza cutter, cut all of it evenly into squares.
Place a small amount of the filling in the middle of 1 square. Top with the another square for ravioli and seal the edges carefully, or again look up how to shape it for tortellini.
Place the pasta individually and carefully into a pot of boiling water for about 3-5 minutes. Use a spaghetti fork to get the pasta out of the water so that it strains excess water.
Top with the sauce of your choosing!.
For the filling:
I mixed together Parmesan and ricotta with basil, garlic powder, oregano, black pepper and paprika. *For the sauce, I made my homemade pesto( recipe is here) and made homemade Alfredo (equal parts: Heavy cream + Parmesan + garlic simmered on a low heat) and mixed the two together for the most delicious creamy pesto alfredo sauce!
Alrighty y’all enjoy :)
