The ravioli

Divide the dough in four. Choose a piece to work with and cover the rest with clingfilm.
Flatten the dough with your hand, and roll it through on the first setting. Fold the dough over and roll it through on the same setting. Repeat this process 10 times, till you have a nice smooth dough. Lay the pasta sheet out on the table, and dut it lightly on both sides with flour.

Set the pastamachine on the next setting, and roll the pasta sheet through. Repeat the process, going a notch thinner each time, till the pasta is as thin as the machine goes.

Dust the table with semolina, and lay the pasta sheet out. Cut the pasta out with a pastry ring. Put a teaspoon og the stuffing in the center. Brush around the edge with som water, and put an other pasta disc on top. Press around the edge with your fingers to seal the ravioli. Make sure you don’t get any air trapped inside the ravioli, or they might burst when you cook them.

Cook the ravioli in salted water. It’ll take 2-5 minutes, depending on how fresh the ravioli are.
When the ravioli are cooked ad them to the chianti sauce, and toss well. The sauce needs to cover all the ravioli with an even coating. If the sauce gets to dry, just ad a little pasta water.
serve with a couple of fresh rosemary leaves, a sprinkle of parmesan and a drizzle of good olive oil.
