Farina integrale di Segale LUZI
For this new recipe that we offer you we use LUZI wholemeal rye flour from Italian organic farming. Those who follow us know this. Our agriculture of cereals and legumes is entirely Italian and is based on biodynamic and bio-sustainable methods for even healthier nutrition, even more attentive to man and the environment.
It is then the stone mill that uses renewable solar energy to ensure the pure integrity of the flour and the complete transfer of all the nutritional elements of the rye, as it is in nature.
A valuable product, rich in micronutrients
The LUZI wholemeal rye flour, used for these ravioli, is a valuable product, rich in micronutrients, essential for a healthy and proper diet. Rye is a natural source of vitamins (PP, E, B5, B1 and B6), mineral salts, such as phosphorus, potassium, magnesium, calcium, zinc, copper, manganese and iron, fiber and protein. It has a low glycemic index and contains good amounts of iron and folic acid which are important in blood regeneration and maintaining the elasticity of the arteries. In short, the precious ally of our health.
For the fresh pasta:
- 250 gr of wholemeal rye flour
- 1 yolk
- 50 ml of water
- A pinch of salt
For the stuffing:
- 100 grams of cooked chard
- 250 grams of cottage cheese
- 40 grams of Parmesan
Let’s move on to the procedure. Prepare the filling by cooking the chard in boiling salted water. Once boiled, drain and chop the vegetables. Work the ricotta with the Parmesan and add the chard. Let it rest in the fridge and in the meantime make up the fresh rye pasta. Place the flour on a surface and put the yolk in the center, starting to work with your hands. Slowly add the water and salt and continue to knead the dough. After obtaining a stick, wrap it in cling film and let it rest for twenty minutes. Roll out the dough with a rolling pin, no more than two millimeters. Cut strips and place the filling at the desired distance. Cover with another strip and shape the ravioli with the chosen mold. Boil in boiling salted water and season to taste.
E, è proprio il caso di dirlo, buon e sano appetito!
