Crab Ravioli with Creamy Tomato Sauce

Submitted by: JOLINAR


Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    Ravioli Dough:
    1 c whole wheat flour
    1 large egg
    1 tbs olive oil
    1 tbs water

    For egg wash:
    1 large egg
    1-2 tbs water

    Filling:
    6 oz cooked crab meat
    1/2 c low fat ricotta cheese
    1 tsp Italian seasoning

    Creamy Tomato Sauce:
    1/2 c tomato sauce
    1/2 cup milk
    1/4 c Parmesan cheese
    seasonings as desired (salt & pepper, garlic/onion powder, whatever)
    remaining crab filling, if there is any left

Directions

1. In a small bowl or cup, mix the egg, olive oil, and water.

2. Put the flour in a separate bow, and make a deep crater in the enter of the flour. Pour half of the egg mixture into the crater and mix it into the flour. Slowly add the rest of the egg mixture in and continue mixing until it holds together.

3. On a floured surface, knead the dough until it forms a smooth bowl. Wrap with plastic wrap and allow to rest in the refrigerator for about an hour.

4. Remove the dough from the refrigerator and let it sit on the counter for 10-15 minutes. Divide it in half. Roll each half to about the thickness of a nickel.

5. Mix the crab meat, ricotta cheese, and seasoning in a bowl.

Here is a good site with the procedure for making & filling the ravioli, but the recipe is different. [http://tim.rocketry.org/cooking/ravioli_pasta/]

6. Place 1 1/2 tsp of filling on the strips of dough, leaving enough room between spoonfuls to close off the dough. Make sure your line of blobs is on one half of the strip of dough, so that you'll be fold the other half over later.

[NOTE: The dough doesn't make a whole lot of ravioli. I got 8 individual raviolis out of it, and still had about half my filling left over. I added it to the sauce.]

7. Brush the egg wash over the exposed dough that will make up the inside of the ravioli. Fold the other half of the dough over the blobs of filling and press the dough together along the edges, and in between blobs. Make sure there is no air in the pockets.

8. Use a knife or pizza cutter to cut in between each blob. Press the individual ravioli edges together tightly.

9. Bring a large pot of water to boil. Drop the ravioli in (you may need to do this in batches) and boil 4-8 minutes, or until tender and floating near the top. Use a slotted spoon to remove the ravioli from the pan.

10. Heat the tomato sauce and milk, but do not boil. Add in cheese. Pour sauce over cooked ravioli.
