Ingredients
Pasta
  • 300 grams 00 flour
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon beetroot powder (You can leave this out if you prefer)
Filling
  • 1 cup pulled pork
  • 3 tablespoons bbq sauce (I used store bought but homemade would be great)
Brown Butter Sauce
  • ¼ cup butter
  • 1 teaspoon ground wattleseeds (I added them because I had them - optional)
Finishing
  • ½ cup beetroot relish
  • 4 tablespoons goats cheese (I used garlic and herb)
Instructions
Filling
  1. Heat the pork with the bbq sauce and make it as fine as you can. I put mine in a food processor.
Pasta
  1. Whisk the beetroot powder with the flour in a bowl
  2. Make a well in the middle and crack the eggs in the well and beat the eggs with a fork until well blended.
  3. Using just the tips of your fingers, pull a little bit of flour into the center, incorporating it as you go.
  4. Once it's come together, pour it out onto a work surface and knead until it all comes together and the gluten is well developed. When the pasta feels smooth and silky, it's ready to roll. You can use a pasta machine or use a well floured surface and a rolling pin.
Making the Ravioli
  1. Cut squares and dampen two sides, add a teaspoon of filling in the center and pull one corner over to make a triangle. Press the sides together and try to get all the air out as you press down.
Cooking the Ravioli
  1. Heat a large pot of boiling water and add the ravioli a few at a time. Once it floats to the top, continue to cook another 2-3 minutes depending upon how thick your pasta is. Cook one and test is my advice.
Brown Butter Sauce
  1. Place butter into a saucepan and heat to medium. When the butter is melted, add the ground wattleseed and cook until the butter begins to turn a nutty brown. Remove from the heat immediately. (I usually set just the bottom of the pan into some cold water in the sink to cool it down)
Plating
  1. Put a tablespoon of beetroot relish on the plate, place two ravioli on top and crumble goats cheese. Drizzle the brown butter sauce over the top and enjoy.
