Wide at spring...



Per la pasta all'uovo: 
1 Kg di semola
500g di farina 00
10 uova
10 tuorli
1 cucchiaio di Olio Extra Vergine d'Oliva del Garda

Per il ripieno al tarassaco:
500g di foglie di tarassaco
200g di ricotta fresca
100g di Trentingrana
Noce moscata q.b.
1 cucchiaio di fecola
Sale e pepe q.b.

Prepare the egg pasta dough, forming a fountain with the semolina and flour; addthe eggs, egg yolks and oil in the center, knead gently until you obtain a smooth and homogeneous dough and let it rest in the fridge for half a day.

In the meantime, blanch the cleaned dandelion, drain it and sauté it in oil with shallot. Once cold, chop it finely.

Place the chopped dandelion in a bowl, add the ricotta andTrentingrana cheeses, a pinch of grated nutmeg, 1 tablespoon of starch, and salt and pepper to taste. Mix well until forming a homogeneous mix.

Remove the pasta dough from the refrigerator and roll it out with the appropriate tool, folding it several times until you obtain a thin pastasheet.

Spread and trim it with a knife to obtain strips about 12 cm high,

Fill a piping bag with the dandelion filling and place mounds of it on the pasta strips, at a distance of 4-5 cm from each other.
Seal the dough by pressing the edges with your fingers and trying to get all air out. Finish by trimming with a toothed wheel to obtain ravioli.

Cook for 5 minutes in boiling salted water and serve the ravioli with grated Trentingranaand melted butter, and with bacon or crunchy speck on top.
