Instructions

  • Combine all of the ingredients for the pasta dough and knead together until it becomes a smooth dough, about 4-5 minutes. Add flour if needed to make a barely tacky dough. Cover in plastic wrap and set aside for 30 minutes.
  • Heat the tablespoon of oil in large skillet over medium heat, then add the mushrooms and garlic. Let cook for 7-10 minutes, or until the water has cooked out of the mushrooms and they are starting to caramelize. Add the fresh herbs and salt and pepper to taste and let cook another 2-4 minutes.
  • Transfer to a food processor and add the Treeline cheese. Process until the mixture is pâté like in texture.
  • Divide the dough into 4 portions and roll out one at a time, leaving the remaining dough covered so as not to dry out. Roll the dough until it is very thin, if using a pasta roller machine, let it go to 4 or 5 (may be roller dependent).
  • Spray a ravioli mold with oil to prevent sticking, then gently lay the dough overtop the mold, press the dough to depress it into each cup. If not using a mold then set the rolled dough onto a flour dusted countertop. Place 1 teaspoon of filling into the center of each ravioli (measure and leave space between each one if not using a mold). Cover with a second sheet of dough and gently press out all the air. If using a mold, use a rolling pin to seal and cut the ravioli. Otherwise, press along the edges to seal the dough and use a ravioli stamp or kitchen scissors to cut the dough. Collect scraps to re-roll.
  • Place shaped ravioli in a single layer on a parchment lined tray and roll out and fill the remaining ravioli. Ravioli can be cooked right away or stored in a single layer between sheets of parchment paper in the fridge for a couple of days, or longer in the freezer (if cooking from frozen, they will need additional time to cook).
  • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the ravioli, cooking in batches to not over crowd the pan. Cook the ravioli until it floats to the top, then cook another 1 minute, about 3-4 minutes in total.
  • Heat some olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat, then add the cooked ravioli. Toast the ravioli in the skillet, turning once or twice, for about 5 minutes or until the ravioli is lightly toasted. Add the pine nuts and rosemary and cook another couple of minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste and enjoy!
