Ingredients

Pasta Ingredients

  • 1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 large eggs
  • Pinch of salt

Mushroom Filling Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon Hiland Dairy Butter
  • 1 cup various mushrooms finely chopped
  • 1 shallot finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon Italian Parsley minced
  • ½ teaspoon oregano
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 1 ½ tablespoons Hiland Dairy Cottage Cheese
  • 1 ½ tablespoons freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon Hiland Dairy Heavy Whipping Cream

Creamy Garlic Sauce Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons Hiland Dairy Unsalted Butter
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/3 cup Hiland Dairy Heavy Whipping Cream
  • 1/3 cup water plus more
  • ½ teaspoon dried thyme
  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley leaves chopped

Instructions

  • On a flat surface, place flour and make a well in the center. Add the eggs.
  • With a fork, slowly mix in the flour from the sides of your well with the eggs to form a smooth dough. Tightly wrap the dough in plastic wrap and let rest for at least one hour.
  • While the dough is resting make the filling. In a medium pan on medium-low heat, add butter chopped mushrooms, chopped shallot and garlic. Cook until golden brown, stirring occasionally.
  • Add the oregano and parsley and cook for about 15 to 20 seconds longer.
  • Sprinkle with flour and add the cream and cottage cheese. Heat on low for about one minute. Remove from heat and add parmesan. Stir to combine and let cool.
  • On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough until it’s thin enough to see your hand underneath.
  • Using a pizza cutter, cut the dough directly down the center.
  • Place one heaping teaspoon of mushroom filling close to one side of the dough and repeat the process leaving about two inches apart from each scoop.
  • Fold over the remaining dough sheet to cover the mushroom filling and using your finger, press the dough between each mound and down both sides to make a seal.
  • Cut away excess dough around each ravioli and crimp each side to close any openings.
  • In salted boiling water, cook the ravioli for approximately five minutes.
  • While the pasta is boiling, make the sauce by melting the butter in a large skillet over medium-low heat and add the garlic. Stir until the garlic starts to slightly brown, approximately one minute. Be sure not to burn the garlic.
  • Stir in the heavy cream, water, thyme and oregano. Salt and pepper to taste. Simmer until slightly thickened, about 1 minute. Add more water if you want a thinner sauce. Remove from heat and stir in the parmesan cheese.
  • Drain the pasta and immediately spoon the cream sauce over top. Garnish with parsley, if desired.

Diva’s Tip: If you want more depth to the flavor, substitute the water with chicken broth.
