Chestnut and porcini ravioli

Chestnut and porcini ravioli

While browsing my ravioli pictures and recipes I found one I invented last year and that was just magnificent: chesnut and porcini ravioli. I love chesnut flour for its sweet taste and delicate flavor and I find it perfect to cook everything, bread, cake, crepes, pancake, crust for tarts or ravioli pasta. It is perfect with autumn veggies, prosciutto, parmegiano, melty cheese... I prepared porcini ravioli with a pasta made with chesnut flour. I simply replaced 3/4 of the regular flour by chestnut flour (more makes the dough hard to work). For the filling I used dried Italian porcini that I rehydrated, I chopped them and mix with a little of flour. You can add meat if you like too, or a bit of cheese. Then I filled the ravioli, boiled them and served with simply olive oil, salt and pepper. Super winner recipe that I really love! Of course if you have the chance to have fresh porcini I recommend to serve some too, just grilled in olive oil to top the ravioli! 

Now wondering what will be my next ravioli!
