The Raviolis

  1. Cut the dough into 2 pieces. Remove one from the cling film to work with, and wrap the remainder to keep it moist. Dust the work surface with semolina flour
  2. Set the pasta maker at its widest setting. Press the first piece of dough into a long rectangle, and feed through the pasta maker. Fold, and repeat again. Repeat the folding three or four times so that the texture becomes more elastic.
  3. Change the thickness to one notch smaller, and feed through the dough. Keep rolling the dough thinner until it is as thin as you can handle.
  4. Cut into four equal pieces. Lay long pieces side by side on the work surface, overlapping by about half a centimetre. Press the seam gently, the pasta should stick by itself. If not, brush with a tiny amount of water to help seal. Repeat with the other two sheets.
  5. Spread the bottom pasta sheet with half the spinach mixture. Lay the second sheet on top, and firmly roll over with the ravioli rolling pin.
  6. Cut along the edges of the raviolis. Set aside on a baking sheet dusted with semolina flour.
  7. Repeat all steps above for the remaining pasta dough.
