  • 17.5 oz (500g) Chestnut mushrooms (crimini), sliced

  • 1 clove garlic

  • 1 sprig thyme

  • 1 batch homemade pasta dough

  • 1 tbsp olive oil

  • 1 heaped tbsp ricotta

  • 2 tbsp parmesan freshly grated

  • salt and pepper to season

  • For The Sauce
  • 1/2 tbsp olive oil

  • 1 pinch nutmeg

  • 2 tbsp parmesan freshly grated

  • 1 cup (250ml) double cream (heavy cream)

  • 1 sprig thyme

  • 1 clove garlic

  • salt and pepper


  • To Make The Filling
  • Heat a 1 tbsp of olive oil in a medium-sized pan, once hot add the finely chopped shallots and sauté until soft and translucent.
  • Add the chopped mushrooms and cook down until reduced in size and softened. Add the garlic and thyme and a good pinch of salt and pepper, fry for 1-2 minutes. Set aside and let cool for 5 minutes.
  • Add the cooled mushroom mixture to a food processor with parmesan and ricotta. Blitz intil smooth and pate like.
  • Assembly
  • Using homemade pasta dough, roll it out from the widest setting to the third last setting. Lay one sheet of pasta down and place around 1 heaped tsp of mushroom mixture in the middle of the pasta sheet 1 inch apart.
  • Fold one edge of the pasta over the filling to meet the other edge. You may need to gently pat the filling down at this point so it folds easier. Using your fingers seal the sides of the ravioli filling as shown.
  • Seal the top of the dough with your thumb whilst holding the two edges. This will ensure all the air has escaped which will stop the ravioli bursting or going wrinkly.
  • Cut the ravioli out either with a ravioli or pasta cutter, cookie cutter or fluted pasta wheel and set aside on a surface sprinkled lightly with semolina or 00 flour whilst you make the next batch
  • Once the Ravioli (or mezzalune) are ready bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the ravioli to the water and cook for around 4 minutes. Meanwhile make the sauce.
  • To Make The Sauce
  • Heat a little olive oil in a large pan and fry the chopped garlic for 1 minute. Add the cream, thyme, nutmeg, salt and pepper. Stir and bring to a boil.
  • Let it boil for 30-40 seconds then turn low and add the freshly grated parmesan. Stir until slightly thickened turn off the heat and add the cooked ravioli straight from the water using a slotted spoon.
  • Toss in the sauce and serve.
