Homemade ravioli filled with vegetables and cheese, salad

Ravioli pasta :(it means to wrap) Make dough from whole wheat flour, egg and some salt. [This dough should be made little harder].
Filling for ravioli : Grated carrots + grated yellow squash + grated cauliflower + grated bell pepper (skin stayes out as u grate) - squeeze out the vegetables water after grating - I use it to make dough. In spoon ful oil add dry herbs (oregano and basil), then the grated veggies, finely grated nutmeg turn of the heat and add parmesan cheese.

Roll the dough into 2 separate thin sheets (chapatis). put the filling on one and cover with another. Press all the way around the filling and cut it with pizza cutter. [its easier than making pieces and then working with it.]

Boil the water and then cook pasta in it. Fresh pasta cooks in 5-8 minutes.

Sprinkle some dry herb-cheese blend with olive oil and shredded cheese. Add some salt and pepper as per taste.

Salad : Lettuce leaves, cucumber, celery and apple bites with dressing.


  1. did you use a pasta maker for the dough or is it just like regular chappathis?

  2. Thanks Akila! Its regular chapati...but the dough I made - as hard as for puri.
