Whole Wheat Spinach Ravioli with Grilled Vegetables Stuffing

Before I say anything, I didn't made this, my huby made it from scratch. My FIL loves ravioli and he wanted to feed him home made  100% whole wheat ravioli. So once he decided that he is going to make it, he made the dough, rest it for some time, grilled the vegetables for stuffing and my FIL helped him to make pasta from pasta machine. If you don't have pasta machine you can just roll the dough and make it too. We made it this way, you can make it big circle and put little stuffing at some distance, make another big circle of dough to cover that and cut it out from stuffing area and use again that dough to make it again. Basically you can add any stuff, just have to make sure that its dry. We didn't add too much cheese in it cause my MIL is not found of cheese so just add it little bit to make it stick together. Whenever you make it  pasta fresh, you don't need to cook them a lot, just two minutes in boiling water and its done. He just used ready made marinara sauce for ravioli because it itself was so good that we didn't need anything else. But I knew the ingredients and how he made it so here it goes.

Ingredients for dough :

1 cup Whole Wheat flour
1/4 cup Semolina
salt to taste
2 tbsp. Olive oil
water as needed
1/4 cup spinach puree ( used frozen spinach, thawed it and grind it)


Take a big bowl. Add flour and semolina. Add salt and olive oil and mix it.
Now add puree and mix it , then add little by little water to make nice and smooth dough.
Cover it with plastic and keep it aside.
Rest the dough for 30-40 minutes.

While the dough is resting, let's prepare for stuffing

Ingredients :

1 eggplant
1/2  zucchini
1 Carrot
1 each red and green capscium
few leaves of Basil
salt and pepper to taste
3 tbsp. pine nuts
4 tbsp mozzarella cheese
2 tbsp. parmesan cheese

Marinara sauce


Chop the vegetables  in slices and grill it.
When its cold, Chop it finely or use your food processor, I use my processor. In food processor , add pine nuts too. Take it out and add salt and pepper , chopped basil

Assembly of Ravioli

He  used the pasta machine to make the dough thin, but you can do it with hands too.
Take one sheet of pasta, add the one and half tsp. stuffing at little space.

Cover it with another sheet of pasta.

Press it around the stuffing and cut it in square shape and with the help of fork, seal the edges.

This is how he make the pasta.

Once everything is done, boil the water.
When water is boiled, add salt in it and drop very carefully one by one ravioli in it.
Take it out with spoon and carefully transfer it to hot marinara sauce.
Sprinkle some more cheese on top and basil leaves and enjoy gourmet diner at home.
