Preparing the recipe for ravioli with asparagus and ricotta

  1. Start by preparing the dough, then pour the flour onto a pastry board.
  2. Create a well in the center and pour in the eggs, along with a pinch of salt.
  3. Knead vigorously to mix the ingredients and create an elastic and firm dough. Wrap it in cling film and leave to rest in the fridge for 1 hour .
  4. For the filling, wash and dry the asparagus, then remove the toughest parts. Cut the tips and set them aside, also cut the stems into thin slices .
  5. Finely chop the onion. Take a non-stick pan and pour a couple of tablespoons of oil on the bottom.
  6. Heat the oil on the stove, then add the onion and asparagus.
  7. Season with salt and pepper and, if you prefer, even a drop of water; stir occasionally and wait until they are well cooked.

  9. Add the warmed asparagus and an egg yolk; add half the grated cheese and mix to create a smooth filling.
  10. Divide the dough into 4 equal parts. Using a machine or simply a rolling pin, thin each piece, forming thin, rectangular sheets, trying to give them the same size.
