Dr. Mark DeNuzio joined Chelsey and Joe in the Studio10 Kitchen with his friend, Andy Fricano, to make Cheese Ravioli. The recipe includes:


2 cups flour

2 extra large eggs

2-3 tablespoons water

1 tsp salt

Mix in a bowl, knead, and run through a pasta roller

Cheese Blend

2 lbs ricotta (I prefer whole milk ricotta)

3 cups shredded mozzarella

2 extra large eggs

1 cup grated Romano or Parmesan cheese

1/4 cup diced fresh parsley

Salt and pepper to taste

Combine ingredients in a bowl and mix until uniform

Red Sauce

Use homemade or your favorite jar of red tomato sauce.

1. Using the #7 or #8 setting on the pasta machine, roll out a sheet of dough. 

2. Cut the dough into large squares. 

3. Place the cheese blend on the dough and fold the dough over to make a triangle or rectangle. 

4. Use a little water on the inside edges to ensure the dough is sealed. 

5. Use a fork to press around the edges to seal the ravioli. 

6. Poke 3-4 small holes in the ravioli. 

7. Cook in salted boiling water until the ravioli float and the edges are al dente, usually about 5 minutes. 

8. Drain the water, plate and cover with sauce. 

Buon Appetito!
