Sweet Pasta Parcels
- For the filling
- ⅔ cup Ricotta cheese
- 1 unwaxed Orange (filleted and chopped, juice retained)
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- ⅛ cup Orange liqueur
- ¼ cup sugar
To make the pastry, mix together the flour, eggs, oil and salt and knead into a smooth pastry. If necessary add some water or flour. Shape into a ball, cover and leave to rest for around 30 min.
To make the filling, mix together the ricotta, orange fillets, lemon juice, liqueur and the sugar.
Roll out the pastry on a floured work surface and cut out circles 8 cm in diameter. Place 1-2 tsp of the filling onto one half of each circle and fold in half. Press the edges together with a fork and cook in boiling salt water for 4-5 min.
Melt the butter in a pan and caramelise the sugar. Add the orange juice.
Remove the ravioli from the water with a draining spoon, arrange on plates and drizzle with the orange sauce. Serve immediately.
