Ravioli with spinach stuffed with fish

A perfect meat free dish which could make your everyday meal a little bit more special. Handmade ravioli with spinach stuffed with fish is a perfect way for you to bring more excitement to your dinner.

Pasta dough
Although it might look a complicated dish –  it is not, you will just need to follow the classic recipe for the handmade pasta dough. To make your ravioli green, simply add the spinach after boiling it (be sure to squeeze as much moisture out as possible before hand) and then add to your four mixture.   

For the fish filling you will need:
  • 1 pound fish (500 g) leftover roasted fish (you could also use boiled, white fish will be fine, though any fish you have will work)
  • 2 cups grated Parmigiano
  • 100 g ricotta
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Shred the fish, removing all traces of skin and bones. Combine the fish with the other ingredients for the filling. To cook the ravioli, boil water in a pan with a drop of oil and rock salt and cook the pasta for between 3-10 minutes depending on the thickness of your dough and whether it has a filling or not.
