  • About 1 hour. (40 minutes active).

Ingredients

Pasta

  • 200 g Tipo '00' flour
  • 2 free range eggs
  • 4 free range egg yolks

Spanakopita Filling

  • 200 g feta grated
  • 150 g ricotta
  • ¼ cup parmesan grated
  • 1 golden shallot
  • 1 clove garlic
  • ½ tsp dill chopped
  • 1 tbsp parsely roughly chopped
  • 1 free range egg
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice

Sauce

  • ½ cup unsalted butter
  • ½ bunch sage leaves
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 4 tbsp parmesan grated
  • Sea salt to season

Method

To make the pasta, place the flour onto a bench, make a well in the centre. Crack the eggs & yolks into the centre and lightly beat, then slowly work the flour into the eggs. Once all the flour is incorporated knead the dough for 5 minutes then wrap in cling film and allow to rest for ½ hr.

To make the filling, place all the ingredients into a large mixing bowl and mix together well, adjust seasoning to your taste if needed, set aside.

Once the pasta has rested you will need to roll through a pasta machine (follow manufacturers instructions) rolling to the thinnest setting.

Cut the pasta sheets into 10 cm x 10cm squares, lay them out into a floured bench, divide the filling between half the amount of pasta squares, then brush each edge with egg yolk and place the other remaining sheets on top, pinch the edges together, set aside.

Place a large high sided pan over a high heat, half fill with water, bring to the boil and add 1 tablespoon of sea salt. Place the ravioli into the boiling water and cook for 5 minutes, you will need to do this in batches, keep warm.

At the same time, place another medium size fry pan over a high heat, add the butter and sage, cook until the butter starts to turn nut brown then add the olive oil to prevent the butter from burning. Season with salt and remove from the heat and stir through the lemon juice & zest.

To serve, place the ravioli onto the serving plates, pour over the sage butter and sprinkle on the parmesan.

And to drink?

2015 Pinot Grigio

Pale straw in colour, the 2015 Pinot Grigio features a heady mix of aromas such as nashi pear, honey dew melon, peach blossom and rose water. The palate is medium bodied, round and succulent with flavours of oat meal, cinnamon and nashi pear crunch. The finish is textured and silky, which is the hallmark of this classic variety.

Real Food is for Real People...

We've put together this collection of recipes to show you how we eat around here. It's not really a coincidence that our food is a lot like our wine: authentic, approachable, and as unpretentious as we can possibly make it.

We'll keep adding to this library over the seasons, to give you loads of choice whatever the occasion you're cooking for.
