D I R E C T I O N S 

1) Blanch the Spinach 

2) Heat oil in a pan, add the onion, garlic, chopped spinach and a pinch of salt.

3) Cook for a few minutes and transfer into a bowl, let it cool down and then ass the crumbled ricotta or paneer to this. Mix it well and use as the filling. 

4) Place filling in the center of the one cut pasta sheet, run a wet finger lightly on the rim, place another sheet on the top of it & start pressing the edges slowly by removing all the air from inside. 

5) Shaping - Seal the edges by using a fork. This ensures proper sealing and also makes it look beautiful. 

6) Cook the raviolis in boiling water for about 4 to 5 minutes. The raviolli will eventually start floating when cooked. TO be sure, test one of the edges. When cooked, transfer into a bowl of ice cold water to avoid over cooking.

Add the cooked raviolis and toss it for 2 -3 minutes. Add the lime zest, lemon juice and black pepper. Serve hot, you can garnish it with some nuts of your choice and parmesan cheese.
