I made the basic pasta and the spinach-ricotta ravioli filling. I then rolled the fillling in the raw dough. My question is, how long do I bake it? I am going to put tomatoe sauce over it before baking. Please help. My email is email@example.com if you need it. Thanks for your time and assistance.
Cannelloni is generally baked for about 25 minutes or until completely heated through; however, because you have raw noodles, this will take a bit longer. Also, make sure to add some tomato sauce to the bottom of the dish as well to prevent sticking. Again, because you are using raw noodles, you'll need to use enough sauce for the noodles to cook in. Ideally, next time you make any pasta dish that you plan to bake, it is best to pre-cook the noodles before assembling. This prevents the noodles from potentially becoming gummy. Cheers!
Hi, I made this the other day using my kitchen aid pasta roller attachment to roll out the pasta sheets. When I was down to the second to last setting I was looking at paper thin pasta. when I put together the raviolis I could see through the top layer and see all the detail of the filling through the pasta. Not exactly like what it looks like in the video. They were so delicate, many broke before making it to the water. I think the Kitchen Aide may not directly correlate to the pasta machine you use in the video. Does anyone know what settings I should use instead?
The thickness of the dough is definitely a personal preference . It's hard to say exactly which setting you should end on because each type of machine can produce different results. This is where practice definitely comes into play so you become well acquainted with your machine. The next time, stop at the 3rd last setting and determine if the thickness works for you. You could even fill a tester piece and cook it to see if you are happy with the results before rolling the dough further. Cheers!
I just purchased the Kitchen Aid Pasta roller. I am looking forward to making Marios Spinach lasagne. My question is, should I knead the dough using the kitchen aid kneading hook or knead the dough for ten minutes by hand as demestrated by RouxBe? Is one way better than the other?
The best way to truly know if one method is better than another is to test if for yourself. I know this may not be the answer you are looking for but really this is the only way to tell if one method is really better than another.
If I were to say that doing it by hand is the best way as it makes for more delicate pasta or that it will give you a better sense of what the dough is doing as you will be able to really feel it and see it for yourself, if I were to say all that it would all just be me telling you what I think. When really either method will work but it just comes down to whether or not YOU can tell a difference between the two methods.
I will say that doing things by hand, at least at first, is a great idea, as it will give you a better sense of what you are doing and what you are looking for. Hope this helps. Cheers!
Is there a common substitute for Ricotta? Hubby is allergic to ricotta, although other cheeses are fine.
I made a spinach pasta that tasted very good fresh and I had lots extra so I dehydrated it for later.
Any idea how much fresh herbs should be added?
I added parmasan to my mixture but it was a little prone to ripping, perhaps I didn't let my gluten develop enough, or the texture of the cheese was separating the dough. I did add parmasan to the top of the pasta, and it seems better suited there ;)
I look forward to making ravioli and my own cannelloni soon!
You might find it useful to bookmark this site for food substitutions. Regarding the herbs, it's really up to you and how much of a pronounced flavor you want in the dish. Yes, parmesan is better suited on top of the dish rather than in the dough as you will encounter these types of problems when working with it. Cheers!
I made Spinach-Ricotta Ravioli for dinner tonight with some pasta dough that I had left over from the linguini I made last night. :-) Now, you must understand how much I detest cooked spinach... BUT, I had spinach in the pasta dough, and spinach in the the ravioli filling.. which gave me this very pleasant soft green dinner.. especially when I added pesto on top. Oh my it was good. Probably the first time in my life that I have ever eaten 2 cups of spinach in one meal and actually enjoyed it!! My mom would have been proud!
