4 Servings
3 1/2 cups all purpose flour
4 eggs
1 pound fresh spinach
1 pound ricotta
1 egg
2 tsp heavy cream
4 tsp grated Parmigiano Reggiano
1. Make a crater with the flour
Incorporate the flour into the eggs with a fork. Knead the flour and eggs together to form dough. Knead until the dough is worked together. Set aside until the raviolis are ready to be assembled.

In a pot of boiling water, cook the spinach with pinch of salt, until tender. Remove the spinach and let cool. Squeeze out the water from the spinach and chop roughly.

In a bowl, combine the spinach, ricotta, egg, heavy cream, and 4 tablespoons of Parmigiano Reggiano. Season with some nutmeg and salt.
4. Assemble raviolis
Cut the dough into 4 pieces. Roll out each piece to form a 1/8 inch-thin layer. Place 1 spoon of filling on 1 sheet of dough. Repeat with remaining fillings and sheets.Pinch the dough around the filling to form the ravioli. Use a cookie cutter or a knife to cut out the raviolis. Pinch the edges of each ravioli with the tines of a fork. Set aside on a plate lightly dusted with flour.
