Pork and Apple Ravioli with a Creamy Mushroom Sauce

With colder evenings closing in, it's time for warming, filling and tasty comfort food! Homemade ravioli is labour intensive, but they are a labour of love, and if you are able to take the time for them, it is worth it! Looking to match the apple and pork and add some warming autumnal flavour to the sauce, I added some apple cider vinegar and Aloha Spiced Cacao. Thank you to Forays into Food for the recipe!


Ingredients:

For the Pasta:

2 1/2 - 3 c flour

3 eggs

2 tbsp apple sauce

1 tsp thyme

Pepper


For the Filling:

2 tbsp olive oil

250-300 g pork, minced

1 c apple sauce

1 large red onion, minced

1 tsp cinnamon

1 - 1 1/2 tsp tandoori powder

1/2 tsp Aloha Spiced Cacao


For the Sauce:

2 tbsp butter

1 c mushrooms, chopped

1-1 1/2 c milk

1/4 c apple cider vinegar

1 tsp Aloha Spiced Cacao

Nutmeg, freshly grated


1) In a large skillet, heat the oil for the filling and sauté the onion. When it is soft, add the pork, cooking until the meat begins to brown. Add the other ingredients for the filling, stirring regularly, until it all comes together. Taste test and put aside to cool.


2) Meanwhile, place flour in a large mixing bowl. Grind in pepper and add thyme. Make a well in the flour and crack in the eggs. Add the apple sauce and mix the flour into the apple and eggs gradually with a fork, to form a soft, elastic dough.


3) Pass fist-sized pieces of dough through progressively higher settings on a pasta maker until as thin as possible. Use a ravioli mould to make hollows in the sheet of pasta and place 1/2 tsp of filling in each. Place a second pasta sheet over the top, seal and cut. (alternatively use a ravioli cutter).


4) Bring a large pot of water to a rolling boil. In the meantime make a roux. Melt 1 tbsp butter in a saucepan. Stir in flour, and then add milk bit by bit, stirring well. Add the vinegar and Aloha Spiced Cacao. Sauté mushrooms in the remaining 2 tbsp butter and add to the sauce. Salt and pepper to taste.


5) Boil ravioli in batches for 4-5 minutes at most. Fresh pasta doesn't take long! Drain and serve with some sauce.
