Marcato Raviolissima Attachment

OMC Marcato How to Use the Marcato Raviolissima Ravioli Attachment

Raviolissima - Step 1
Prepare the sheet of dough with the Atlas Pasta Machine, making sure that you pass it for the last time through setting 5 as the appropriate thickness. The sheet of dough must be dryish, but not completely dry.

Raviolissima - Step 2
The ideal length for a sheet of dough is 20" to 30". If using an Atlas 150, cut it to the proper width using the special roller.

Raviolissima - Step 3
Flour the dough lightly.

Raviolissima - Step 4
Fold the sheet of dough in half and insert it into the Raviolissima. If your model has a separate feeder unit, first install in place and then insert the folded sheet of dough into the feeder unit until it reaches the rollers. Crank the handle 1/4 turn to introduce the sheet into the rollers.

Raviolissima - Step 5
Open the folded dough like a book over the wooden or metal rollers.

Raviolissima - Step 6
Insert about 3 teaspoons of filling

Raviolissima - Step 7
Turn the handle very slowly, and check to make sure that the ravioli are coming out straight and not getting stuck under the Raviolissima.

Raviolissima - Step 8
If the first ravioli should get stuck, remove it manually and straighten the sheet from the underside, so the rest will come out in good shape.

Raviolissima - Step 9
Slowly turn the handle, and keep adding filling as needed.

Raviolissima - Step 10
When the entire sheet has been rolled through the Raviolissima, place it on a flat cloth to dry. After drying, the ravioli will be easier to separate.



Pasta Dough Recipe
6 Servings

5 eggs
1 lb flour

Place a pound of flour on a working surface and make a hole in the center.

Put 4 eggs into the hole.

Gently begin mixing the flour with the eggs.

To soften the mixture, 1/2 oz of olive oil, a little water, or another egg may be added.

Continue to knead the dough until it reaches a uniform texture and color. It should be soft and smooth.

Form a ball with the dough, wrap it in a towel, and let it rest for a few minutes.

Cut the dough into small slices and pass each piece through the flat rollers of the Atlas Pasta Maker, with the regulating knob set at the widest position, number 1.

Fold the pressed sheet in two and pass it again through the rollers.

Repeat folding and rolling several times, lightly flouring the sheet each time it is passed, to keep it smooth.

Then reduce the thickness of the sheet by passing it through the rollers one thickness setting smaller each time, until you reach the desired thickness, usually number 5 for the Raviolissima.

You are now ready to use your sheet of rolled dough in the Raviolissima.
