With these doses you can make about 30 ravioli.
For the sauce, melt 40 grams of salted butter, the rest of the gorgonzola and three tablespoons of the pasta cooking water.
If you prefer to season them with butter and sage, add three finely chopped sage leaves to replace the gorgonzola.

Fresh beetroot pasta
Fresh pasta with beetroot is a basic preparation that will allow you to make beautiful and spectacular colorful fresh pasta, perfect to be served with light-colored sauces, such as cheese sauces, or butter and sage or why not, a nice sauce fish based. And once the basic dough is ready, you can decide which format to give it: tagliatelle, tagliolini, pappardelle, garganelli, farfalle, maltagliati, corzetti or maybe some nice ravioli filled with shrimp or fish.
For this fresh beetroot pasta any red beet is fine, as long as it is cooked: you choose whether to use one in the oven or one steamed, of those that are vacuum-packed in the refrigerated counter at the supermarket, the result will still be perfect! A tip, maybe for the first stages use gloves, otherwise you will color all your hands!
To prepare the fresh beetroot pasta, start by putting 150 g of cooked red beet pulp in a mixer and operating it in jerks, reduce it to a fine and homogeneous puree.
Sift 450 of 00 flour and arrange it in a heap on the work surface (wooden), then form a hollow in the center in which to break, one at a time, the three eggs at room temperature, then add a pinch of salt, a tablespoon of oil of olive and the pureed pulp of the beet.
Starting from the center, gently mix the eggs with a fork, gradually taking the flour from the edges. Then incorporate the flour with your hands starting from the outside and bringing it inwards, then knead everything vigorously for at least 10 minutes (if the dough is slightly hard, you can add one or two tablespoons of warm water, on the contrary , you can add a little more flour). While kneading, whisk the dough from time to time on the work surface: this will make it more elastic.
Wrap your Beetroot Fresh Pasta in cling film and let it rest for about 30 minutes in a cool, dry place. After resting, the dough will be softer and more elastic.
After the rest time has elapsed, then prepare to roll it out: divide the dough into pieces the size of an egg, then (while you roll one out, keep the others wrapped in cling film) place the dough on the well floured work surface and press it lightly with your palms hands.
At this point, pass it under the rolling pin several times, often turning the dough 90 degrees, in order to obtain a rounded dough about half a millimeter thick. Repeat this process for all the dough loaves.
Usually, to make less effort, I use a pasta machine like this https://amzn.to/2B6dPGv which allows me to obtain really thin sheets of uniform thickness.
Once you have obtained the dough of the right thickness, you can make the pasta shapes you prefer (except the bigoli and corzetti which are not made starting from the rolled sheet but from the dough), following the instructions that you find at the bottom of the recipe.
Whichever format you intend to make, remember that fresh beetroot pasta can be safely frozen: put the pasta on trays dusted with flour so that it is not piled up. When the individual pieces of pasta are frozen, transfer them to a food bag and put everything back in the freezer. In this way the pasta will keep up to 3 months. When ready to use it, defrost it at room temperature or in the refrigerator and then cook it as if it were fresh.
The doses of this basic recipe are sufficient to prepare approximately six portions of fresh pasta such as pappardelle, tagliatelle or tagliolini, or eight portions of filled pasta, such as tortellini or agnolotti, or ten of baked pasta, such as lasagna or cannelloni.
To make lasagna and cannelloni: once you have made the basic sheet, to obtain the sheets for the lasagna you just need to cut out rectangles of 20 x 14 centimeters, or the size suitable for the pan you will use for the preparation of the lasagna. Putting a strip of filling on the rectangle of pastry prepared for the lasagna and rolling it on itself, you will get beautiful pink cannelloni.
Prepare pappardelle, tagliatelle and tagliolini: flour the basic pastry well, roll it on itself until it forms a roll and then cut it into slices, which must have different widths depending on the format you choose: from 1.5 to 2 centimeters for the pappardelle , from 5 to 7 millimeters for tagliatelle and 2 or 3 millimeters for tagliolini. When you have cut all the roll into slices of the thickness you want, unroll the various slices and arrange the various piles on a floured surface, until ready to cook them, or put them in a closed container and freeze them.
Garganelli: with a smooth wheel, cut the dough into squares of 2.5-3 cm per side, then roll each piece of dough on a round stick with a diameter of 5 mm starting from a point, pass it over the appropriate board or any striped surface , then remove the garganello from the stick and proceed in this way with all the pieces of pasta.
Macaroni alla chitarra: to make macaroni alla chitarra, you will need the guitar: an instrument made up of taut steel wires, placed parallel to each other on a wooden frame. Cut the dough into several rectangles smaller than the strings of the guitar, place them on the strings and slide over the rolling pin until the dough is cut. If it tends to stick, sprinkle it with a little flour.
Maltagliati: to obtain the maltagliati, roll the pastry and cut it on the bias, in order to obtain irregular rhombuses. Do not worry that they all have the same shape, if they are irregular it is better, after all they are Maltagliati!
Reginette: after having rolled out the dough, cut it into strips about 1 cm wide, using a wavy wheel.
Farfalle: after having rolled out the dough, cut it into strips about 7 centimeters wide, using a toothed wheel, then cut the strips with a smooth wheel to obtain rectangles about 4 centimeters high. With your thumb and forefinger pinch the rectangles starting from the center of the two non-wavy sides and applying light pressure, make the dough stick to the center.
Stricchetti: cut the pastry into a diamond shape with a notched wheel. With your fingers bring together the two obtuse corners towards the center by pinching them, so as to form a sort of bow.
Bigoli: to make them you will need to get the classic bigolaro, a press used for the production of bigoli. By passing the pasta through this press, with a 3 mm die, you will obtain perfect bigoli. In the absence of the press, you can always use a rather resistant potato masher equipped with a wide hole die. Usually the length of bigoli is around 25-30 centimeters.
Corzetti: with the dough make many rolls about 1 centimeter thick, obtain many balls that you will then have to shape by pulling them and pressing the ends between thumb and forefinger. At this point, twist them to obtain eight-shaped bows.
Beetroot ravioli with gorgonzola - Recipes
These days I was thinking about how important trust is, in someone who
"he says what he does and does what he says."
These ravioli are genuine: they do and say what they seem :)
I assure you this recipe is superb, and is the personalized union of at least 3 different recipes, plus a personal touch.
In other words, they are half-moon-shaped raviolotti, filled with a beetroot-based dough, customizable in various ways, and seasoned in a very simple way, with butter, grated cheese and poppy seeds.
In my opinion, a good smoked ricotta adds a lot, compared to Parmesan, so I suggest you get it, even if the original recipe does not provide it. yet in my opinion it smells of the north-east, where the smoked, whether cheese or salami, is a must :) in short, I find it much more suitable.
Don't be scared by the recipe, it's not difficult at all! the hardest part is rolling out the dough (for me who don't have the machine to roll the dough!), so I said it all !!

50 gr milk (or soy milk)
a pinch of whole salt
500 gr cooked red beets
150 gr potatoes
50 gr breadcrumbs
butter (quantity of your choice, let's say from a minimum of 50 g to about 100 g)
a piece of smoked goat ricotta cheese to be grated (if not: grated parmesan)
salt and pepper
Mix the flour with the eggs and milk until you get a smooth dough, form a ball and wrap it in plastic wrap, put the ball to rest in the fridge for at least an hour.
Boil the potatoes.
In the meantime, cut the beets into slices and place them in a saucepan with a teaspoon of butter, cook for a couple of minutes and then blend everything with the blender, then continue to dry the mixture on the stove. After a few minutes, add a generous pinch of cinnamon (I will have put half a teaspoon, but I LOVE cinnamon, so you decide the quantity!)
Mix the beetroot puree with the mashed potatoes, add an egg.
Toast the breadcrumbs in a non-stick pan, add a pinch of salt and a teaspoon of butter, remove from the heat when the butter is melted (remove it first if the breadcrumbs show burning!). Add the breadcrumbs to the potato and beetroot mixture, and add about two tablespoons of smoked goat ricotta.
Roll out the dough thin and cut into disks with a coffee cup or similar, fill the disks with a teaspoon of mixture and fold the disk in half, in a crescent shape. Seal the edges.
Boil the water with a large spoonful of oil (it will prevent the casunziei from sticking) and a little coarse salt: as soon as the water boils, lower the heat to the minimum (this will prevent the casunziei from exploding or opening in the street. of the thermal shock!) and immerse the casunziei giving a quick stir with a wooden spoon. When cooked, drain and toss with the remaining melted butter, a sprinkling of smoked ricotta and a generous spoonful of poppy seeds.

Ravioli with beetroot and gorgonzola
INGREDIENTS FOR 4 PEOPLE:
250 gr flour 00
70 gr of beetroot puree already boiled
220 gr gorgonzola
300 grams of Jerusalem artichoke
1 small potato
60 gr of pistachios
extra virgin olive oil, salt
sprouts to decorate
Blend the eggs together with the beetroot until it becomes a puree without lumps, mix the flours and create the classic fountain on the work surface, add the egg and beetroot mixture, a pinch of salt and a teaspoon of oil. Mix the dough first with a fork and then with your hands until you get a dough that you will need to rest in the refrigerator for at least half an hour.
Peel the pistachios and chop them coarsely, add them in a bowl (set aside a p & ograve to decorate the finished dish) together with the cheese and mix well.
For the cream: clean and peel the Jerusalem artichokes and the potato, cut them into pieces and pour them into a pan covered with water and the juice of half a lemon (this will allow it to keep a nice white color) cook for about 15 minutes and in any case until they will be soft. Drain them and let them cool down a bit, pass them in a blender together with a pinch of salt and 2 tablespoons of oil until you get a homogeneous cream without lumps, adding water if it is too thick. Keep it aside.
Roll out the dough thinly with the appropriate machine, arrange the filling at a regular distance, fold the dough to cover the filling and with the help of a pastry cutter, shape them to obtain the desired shape, seal them well in the edges shaping them to have the classic shape of ravioli, (I have chosen the round shape to have an unconventional format), flour them well to prevent them from sticking together and keep them aside.
Cook the ravioli in abundant salted water for about 6 minutes (the cooking time depends on the thickness you gave to the pasta)
in the meantime, heat the Jerusalem artichoke cream and pour three tablespoons on the bottom of each plate, drain the ravioli and place them on the plates, spread a drizzle of squoolio and sprouts to taste over the chopped pistachios.
