Caramelized Onion and Goat Cheese Ravioli
1 recipe fresh pasta dough here
1/2 cup goat cheese
1/4 smoked gouda
1 tbls olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped
1 tsp garlic
garlic salt to taste
4 tbls butter
1 tbls flour
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup smoked cheddar cheese
To make the filling combine goat cheese, and gouda in a small mixing bowl.
Place your onion in a medium saucepan with the oil. Cook until just starting to caramelize, about 5-10 minutes. Add in your garlic and cook for another minute.
Once the garlic and onion are cooked transfer to the bowl with your cheeses and stir to combine. Season with garlic salt to taste, and set aside.
Set a medium pot full of water over high heat and bring to a boil.(Remember to always salt your water when cooking pasta) Meanwhile, using a pasta roller, roll out your dough thin, to your desired ravioli liking. Cut circles using a cookie cutter and carefully spoon your filling mixture onto one side. Fold the other half over the filling sealing the ravioli. Go back again with a fork to help seal it very well, they will open up and then you have ravioli filling all up in your boiling pasta water. Once all the ravioli are sealed, put all of it into the boiling salted water. Cook until al dente, about 5-7 minutes. Strain the ravioli, reserving 1 cup of pasta water.
To make the sauce melt the butter in a medium saucepan. Add in flour to make a roux. You don’t want to cook it to much, it will be a white sauce. Lower heat to low and add in Cream. Stir to combine, then add in cheese until melted.
Add the ravioli to the sauce and serve immediately.
