Heart Beet Ravioli


Heart Beet Ravioli are a super dinner idea for a romantic birthday or anniversary dinner. What better way to say “I Love You” than with food? I use beetroot puree to turn the ravioli dough a pink color. I also use a pasta machine to roll out the ravioli but if you don’t have one, you can use a rolling pin. Just keep rolling the dough until it’s nice and thin.

The filling is really simple to make. Combine ricotta, parmesan, mint leaves and lemon zest. Mix together and season to taste. Refrigerate until you need to use it. Start the pasta dough like you would any pasta with flour and eggs. Add beetroot puree to give it a pink hue. Use a heart shaped cutter to shape the ravioli.

To make the Heart Beet Ravioli, you will need the following ingredients:

So, how do you make Heart Beet Ravioli?

Steps to make Heart Beet Ravioli


Prepare the filling


Combine the ricotta, parmesan, mint leaves and lemon zest together in a bowl. Mix well and season with salt and pepper to taste. Place in the refrigerator.


Start the ravioli


Pile the flour onto a clean surface. Make a well in the centre of the flour and break in each of the eggs and add the beet puree. Mix together with a fork until all the ingredients are combined.




Knead the dough for 5-10 minutes with your hands until it feels smooth and elastic. Cover and allow to rest for 30 minutes.


Roll the pasta dough


Cut the dough ball into four e, take one piece at a time and run it through a pasta machine on the largest setting 4-5 times. Continue to run the dough through the machine and lower the setting each time you run it through until you have a thin sheet of dough.


Fill the ravioli


Spoon a heaping teaspoon of filling at 2 inch intervals over the pasta sheet. Brush some water around each spoonful of filling and place a second sheet on top. Press down around the filling and use a heart shaped cutter to make filled ravioli.


Cook the ravioli


To cook the ravioli, place them in salted boiling water for about 8-12 minutes until they float to the top. This indicates that they are ready.



Serve with your favorite ravioli accompaniment - I love brown butter or herby pesto. To really showcase the pasta and filling, simply drizzle with olive oil.
