I’ll be spending Christmas at work, but that didn’t keep me from creating a nice Christmas dinner. So I came up with these butternut mushroom ravioli that we had about every other night in December while I was experimenting with the recipe. 

Making ravioli yourself does take a little practice, but I got better and faster every time. It’s almost like a meditation for me, just me and the ravioli for 20 minutes. 

The butternut mushroom ravioli with spinach or rocket salad and pine nuts turned out to be our favourite combination.

How to make the butternut mushroom ravioli

For the dough we need 1 cup flour, 1 cup semolina, 1/4 teaspoon turmeric (optional) and 1/4 teaspoon salt.

Stir well and add 1 tablespoon olive oil and a 3/4 cup of water. You might have to add a little more flour or water. The dough should be easily manageable and not too sticky.
Knead well, cover up and put it in the fridge.

For the filling cut about 1 cup butternut squash and about 1/2 cup mushrooms. Chop them up, it’s easiest in a little food processor*.

Heat the filling in a skillet with a little olive oil and add 1/4 teaspoon salt and about the same amount of nutmeg. I use this zester*. Then fill it in a little bowl to cool.

Now you need the dough, a rolling pin, flour, a glass, a fork, the bowl with the filling and a little spoon, and two plates or a big board with a little more semolina for the ravioli. 

Roll out the dough as thin as possible. You should still be able to turn it around without tearing it.

Now use the glass to cut out circles. Place a little amount of the filling on the circles and fold them over, then close them with a fork.

Place the ravioli on the plates or board, try not to put them on top of each other to avoid them sticking together. 

Carefully put in boiling salt water, it’s best to use a straining ladle* to prevent the ravioli from breaking. 

Boil them for about 5 minutes while roasting 1 tablespoon dried tomatoes, 1 garlic clove, 1 teaspoon maple syrup, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon thyme, some thyme twigs and 1 teaspoon pine nuts in a skillet.

Then add the ravioli and roast them for a few minutes.
