Gluten Free Valentine’s Heart-Shaped Ravioli

 
After weeks of seeing cute heart shaped foods all over the internet, I knew I had to whip up some of my own for Valentine’s Day! I decided to go with ravioli, and I love how it turned out! The process definitely takes some time, but it was super fun and so worth it.

Dough
  1. 2-1/2 cups Pamela's gluten free Artisan blend {or other all purpose gf flour}
  2. 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  3. 1 teaspoon salt
  4. 5 eggs
  5. 1 egg yolk
Filling
  1. 1 cup ricotta {or use cottage cheese}
  2. 1/2 cup 5 cheese Italian blend
  3. 1/4 cup fresh grated Parmesan
  4. 1 TBS basil
  5. 1/2 TBS minced garlic
  6. Dash of nutmeg, salt, & ground pepper
Instructions
  1. Mix dough ingredients in large bowl until combined.
  2. Remove mixture from bowl, and knead until no longer tacky - may need to add additional flour, but don't overdo it {gluten free flours can vary greatly!} Let dough sit for about 20 minutes
  3. While dough is resting, combine ingredients for filling.
  4. After dough has set, roll out about 1/3 of the dough at a time on a floured surface. You want to get it fairly thin. {if you have a pasta machine, use it! We don't ;)}
  5. Next, use a heart shaped cookie cutter {probably 2" top-to-bottom} to cut the dough - it goes faster to do several at once. Use a spatula to carefully move hearts to parchment paper {we were out so I used tin foil.}
  6. Once my hearts were laid out I added a level teaspoon of the filling to each one - any more and they wouldn't have closed!
  7. After scooping the filling, I laid on the "top heart" and sealed the edges. To seal the edges, dip your fingers in water {I had a little dish} and rub/press the edges together. I followed that up by pressing the edged with a fork for added security {plus I think it looks cute.}
  8. To cook, gently place each pasta in a large pot of boiling water for about 10-15 minutes {depending on how thick your dough is... ours were pretty thick!} I gently stirred them while they were cooking to keep them from sticking - they will start to take on a "rubbery" feel when they're done. - After they're cooked, I gently poured them in the strainer & rinsed. I also stirred in a little olive oil to keep them from sticking to one another in the strainer.

Because there was no room for meat in the filling, we topped our ravioli with a meaty tomato sauce and it was perfect!

  • I would have never thought about actually making ravioli. What a good idea! You could really make them in any shape. Did you you the GF Betty Crocker mix for the brownies?

  • It was super fun! Yes – the Betty Crocker brownie mix is by far my favorite option. I suppose I should learn how to make some good ones homemade – but y mess with perfection? 😛

  • How fun Kate 🙂 The heart-shaped ravioli looks so pretty. It looks like you had a great Valentines Day!!

  • Jenna H

    I am IMPRESSED my friend!! That looks so dang good! I don't think I could ever do that though 🙂

    Jenna

  • We sure did!

  • aww thanks 🙂 – I'm sure you could! I was actually surprised at how relatively easy they were to assemble… the "hard" part is really how long it takes.

  • Oh man, look at you go!  These are adorable – and look delicious!

  • They were pretty darn good… I think they would have been better if I would have used ricotta though – next time!

  • What a great idea for V-Day!  They look both cute and delish!

  • Thanks! it was perfect 🙂

  • The ravioli look delicious! And I've never seen anyone make it GF at home! We usually make the GF Panty brownies and those are delicious, we haven't tried Betty Crocker though.

    I also stopped to read your bio and my mother in law and sister in law both have Celiac, so I'm pretty familiar with the diet. Our chances of having a daughter with Celiac are pretty high as well, but we dont have children yet. I'm so glad you stopped by my blog so I can get new ideas for dishes to share with my family that are GF!

  • well I'm glad we found each other! 🙂 We love Betty Crocker cake & brownie mixes, but since they're about $5 each we don't have them that often – definitely worth it when we do! {and they're at target so we don't have to make a special trip to get them :)}
