Preparation

  • Mix the flour with the eggs and oil until it becomes smooth and homogenous, wrap it in plastic wrap and let it rest in the refrigerator for around 30 minutes.
  • In the meantime, in a bit of oil, heat the whole garlic clove in a pan, add the washed borage leaves.
  • Let them wilt and then cool.
  • Remove garlic, slice it, and pour the mixture into a bowl, then add the ricotta, the Parmigiano Reggiano cheese, the egg and the other herbs.
  • Salt it and put the filling mixture in the refrigerator while you roll out the pasta dough.
  • With a rolling pin or pasta machine, roll of the dough until it’s thin, then slice into wide strips.
  • Distribute the filling at regular distances and then fold the pasta onto the filling, closing it well and letting the air out.
  • With a cutting mould or serrated circle, cut out the ravioli in your preferred shape and size.
  • Cook in salted water for just 2 minutes and lift them out with a perforated spoon, placing them in a pan into which you have melted butter.
  • Sauté the ravioli briefly, add the chopped chives and the borage flowers.
  • Serve with Parmigiano Reggiano cheese.
