Sweet ravioli

By Food E Fare

Sweet ravioli is a dessert variation of the traditional savory ravioli, where the pasta pockets are filled with sweet fillings rather than savory ones. These dessert ravioli are typically made with a sweet pasta dough and can be filled with various sweet ingredients such as fruits, chocolate, nuts, or sweetened cheese. Here's a basic recipe for sweet ravioli with a chocolate and ricotta filling:


For the Sweet Pasta Dough:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • Pinch of salt

For the Chocolate and Ricotta Filling:

  • 1 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Chocolate chips or chopped chocolate (optional)

For Assembly and Cooking:

  • Flour for dusting
  • Egg wash (1 beaten egg with a little water)


Sweet Pasta Dough:

  • Place the flour on a clean surface, make a well in the center, and add eggs, granulated sugar, and a pinch of salt into the well.
  • Gradually incorporate the flour into the wet ingredients until a dough forms.
  • Knead the dough for about 8-10 minutes until it becomes smooth and elastic. Wrap it in plastic wrap and let it rest for at least 30 minutes.

Chocolate and Ricotta Filling:

  • In a bowl, combine ricotta cheese, powdered sugar, cocoa powder, vanilla extract, and chocolate chips (if using). Mix until well combined.

Assembly and Cooking:

  • Roll out the sweet pasta dough into thin sheets. Place small amounts of the chocolate and ricotta filling onto one sheet, leaving space between each portion.
  • Brush egg wash around the filling and cover with another sheet of pasta. Press around the filling to seal the edges.
  • Use a ravioli cutter or a knife to cut out individual sweet ravioli.
  • Boil the sweet ravioli in water for 3-4 minutes or until they float to the surface. Drain.
  • Serve the sweet ravioli with a drizzle of chocolate sauce, fruit compote, or a dusting of powdered sugar.
