Ravioli With Walnut Pesto And Parma Ham

Method:

1. For the pasta, mix all the ingredients and knead until the dough is elastic and stretchy. Cover with cling film and store in a cool place for 30 minutes. Quickly cook the Swiss chard and spinach in a pan only with the water remaining from rinsing. Once cooked, wring it out and chop finely. Add the garlic, marjoram, ricotta cheese and egg and mix well. Finish with grated Parmesan and minced prosciutto. Add salt to taste.

2. Roll out a thin sheet of pasta and cut squares of about 6 cm per side. On each square, arrange a knob of filling, then fold the pasta to form a triangle and seal the edges. Arrange the ravioli’s on trays covered with dish towels.

3. For the walnut pesto, peel the walnuts after blanching them, then pound them in a mortar with garlic, marjoram and crumb. Salt and add the necessary oil to make a creamy and smooth pesto. If too hard, add a couple tablespoons of boiling water.

4. Cook the ravioli’s in salted boiling water, drain and dress with the walnut pesto. Garnish with Parma Ham.
