Ravioli Burrata di Andria IGP on bean cream and bottarga. Today's recipe is simple, but they need a bit’ of patience, the time and the desire to make pasta at home. Although, honestly, I never understood why when I say that often on Sundays I make pasta at home people remain amazed. To make the dough takes 5 minutes and, with the pasta machine, pull the dough is a moment. The taste, instead, It is really another world. In any case, if you have doubts about how to make ravioli, You should read my article on HOMEMADE RAVIOLI: DOUGH, SHAPES AND RIPIENS and watch the VIDEO TUTORIAL.

Certain, if you have not the machine and pull the dough on rolling pin it takes a while’ over time, but you can easily do. This recipe is very similar to me the air of spring: fresh, delicate, almost brisk. Do not forget to have a look at all my SPRING RECIPES and at RECIPES WITH BEANS, as the Vignarola a the delicate BEAN SOUP OF SICILY, PEAS AND LETTUCE.

Given that then you have to make pasta, the filling of the ravioli with burrata on bean cream consisting simply of burrata, pepper and lemon zest. A delicate filling and simply good, like that of RAVIOLI RICOTTA, to be seasoned with tomato. The cream is minimal, only made of pureed fresh fava beans with olive oil and bottarga goes just sliced.

There must be someone of your relatives or friends who deserves to be amazed in front of ravioli made with your hands and enchanted by the simple elegance of these flavors. Burrata is delicate, has a strong taste of milk and lemon zest exalts it to perfection. The bean cream has a slight bitter hint, the roe from that contribution of salinity that it is necessary to balance the dish. And now I wish you good day.

burrata ravioli on bean cream and bottarga

Once the dough prepared by following the recipe you find here, let rest the dough at room temperature, wrapped in plastic wrap, for at least 30 minutes.

For the filling: open the burrata and taken the inner part (use the outer mozzarella wrapper for baked pasta or some other delicious recipe). Coarsely chop the burrata and put it in a bowl: drizzle with the lemon zest and black pepper.

After the rest time of the dough, derive the sheets from dough with a rolling pin or with the pasta machine: I pull the not too thin puff because I like to feel the texture of the egg paste and I get to number 7 of the machine. Once the sheets made, with a coppapasta derive the size of the disks that Favorite. Moisten the edge of the dough with a little slightly beaten egg white, arrange a little burrata filling in the center and close with the second disc of pasta, sealing the edges with the tines of a fork or pressing with fingers.

Put away the dumplings on a cloth sprinkled with durum wheat semolina.

For the cream of beans: brown in a pan the finely chopped shallot with extra virgin olive oil and little vegetable broth, so that wither but not burn. When the shallots will become transparent, combine the beans (I recommend, you also have to delete the second peel) well washed, brown lightly and cook for a few minutes over a high heat adding a little hot broth. Blend the beans by adding an extra virgin olive oil and vegetable broth as much as necessary to obtain a fluid and homogeneous cream. Season with salt and pepper.

Cut the roe into thin slices.

Cook the ravioli in salted water, drain al dente and toss in a pan with the cream of fava beans, adding a little vegetable broth and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil so that the ravioli are evenly covered with a creamy, glossy sauce.

Serve the ravioli by making the dish with the bottarga and with a little fresh burrata. Bon appétit!


MATCHING: we go to Sicily to find the right wine for these ravioli with burrata, beans and mullet and precisely from Firriato. The bottle that suggest there is an IGT Terre Sicilian, Quater Vitis White, a wine with a strong mineral fruit of a blend of four Sicilian grapes (Cataratto, Zibibbo, Carricante e Inzolia).

Mila, I'm sure you often make the fresh pasta! And next time try my ravioli and give me an opinion! A warm greeting!

I love the roe, I wanted to ask instead of chickpeas can also put other legumes such as beans
Ada Thanks for the wonderful recipe

Hello dear Elizabeth! No you can not use other legumes, must be especially beans and broad beans, otherwise you lose the freshness of the dish. One kiss, ADA

Hi Ada!
You're right, make fresh pasta is a snap, but it pays a lot. I prepared for the first time as a teenager, for Christmas, and the colored stools, yellow, Red and green, but the proportions of the various colors and it was not divided out so much to invite an army!!!
A hug! Antonella :-)
