Ingredients

  • 2-1/2 to 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons olive oil
  • SAUCE:
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 can (28 ounces) Italian crushed tomatoes
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 2 to 3 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • FILLING:
  • 8 ounces burrata cheese, cut into 30 quarter-sized pieces
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh basil

Directions

  1. Place 2-1/2 cups flour in a large bowl. Make a well in the center. Beat eggs, water and oil; pour into well. Stir together, forming a ball. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, 4-6 minutes, adding remaining flour if necessary to keep dough from sticking. Cover and let rest 30 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion; cook and stir until tender, 2-3 minutes. Add garlic; cook and stir 1 minute longer. Stir in remaining sauce ingredients. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer until flavors are blended, about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Keep warm.
  3. Divide pasta dough in half; on a lightly floured surface (or using a pasta roller) roll 1 portion to 1/16-in. thickness. (Keep pasta covered until ready to use.) Working quickly, arrange burrata pieces 1 in. apart over half of pasta sheet. Top each piece of burrata with a scant 1/2 teaspoon basil. Fold sheet over; press down to seal. Cut into squares with a pastry wheel. Repeat with remaining dough and filling.
  4. In a Dutch oven, bring salted water to a boil; add ravioli. Reduce heat to a gentle simmer; cook until ravioli float to the top and are tender, 1-2 minutes. Drain. Serve with sauce.
