Basic Pasta (Makes 2 lbs)

1 ½
cups semolina flour
1 ½
cups all-purpose flour
large free-range eggs

Swiss Chard Ravioli (approx. 40 raviolis)

Tbsp olive oil
cloves garlic, minced or grated
lb(s) cremini mushrooms, minced
small onion, minced
sprigs fresh thyme, leaves removed from stems
large leaves Swiss chard, trimmed from stems
cup mascarpone
cup Parmesan, grated

Truffled Rosée Sauce (Creamy Tomato Sauce) (Makes 1 1/2 cups)

Tbsp butter
tsp fresh oregano, minced
cup heavy cream
cup mascarpone
cup diced tomatoes (fresh or canned)
fresh ground salt and pepper
grated Parmesan cheese, for sprinkling
white truffle oil, for drizzling


Step 1

In a large bowl combine flours and mix well.

Step 2

Create a well in the centre of the flour and crack eggs directly into it.

Step 3

Bring flour over eggs and begin to mix with your hands. This part is going to get messy, but just keep mixing.

Step 4

Continue to pat, punch, wrestle, mix, chat to and disagree with your dough until it becomes smooth and elastic.

Step 5

Allow to rest for 30 minutes to 2 hours (under moist kitchen towel) before using.

Step 6

Roll up Swiss chard leaves and slice across in thin strips.

Step 7

In a large sauté pan on medium heat, heat olive oil and add in garlic, mushrooms, onion and thyme. Sauté until just softened. Add Swiss chard and continue to cook until all vegetables are cooked through.

Step 8

Stir in mascarpone and Parmesan and set aside.

Step 9

To assemble the ravioli: Cut dough into two pieces and roll out to an 1/8-inch thick on a heavily floured surface.

Step 10

Using a ravioli cutter or small biscuit cutter (about 1 1/2-inch) cut out circles (squares could also be done freehand).

Step 11

Fill raviolis with about 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of filling in centre of circle. Wet edges of both circles and pinch edges together. Set aside in one layer on floured surface until ready to use.

Step 12

Fill a large stock pot with water and season generously with salt and a small amount of oil. Bring to boil.

Step 13

When all raviolis are filled and ready to cook drop them all into pot and cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring thoroughly at beginning to prevent sticking.

Step 14

Drain and plate, top with rosé sauce (recipe follows), a drizzle of truffle oil and a sprinkle of Parmesan.

Step 15

In a small sauté pan, melt butter and continue to cook until it begins to brown slightly. Remove from heat and add oregano, cream and mascarpone stirring until combined.

Step 16

Return to heat, add in tomatoes and salt and pepper. Continue to cook on low heat until sauce thickens slightly. Serve over pasta with a drizzle of truffle oil and a sprinkle of Parmesan.
