Pasta dough
4 cups flour
2 eggs
1 egg yolk
Parmesan cheese, grated
2 tablespoons olive oil
pinch of salt
chicken stock

1 breast of chicken, boiled and cut up
1/2 pound cooked veal, cut up
1 pound spinach, chopped
garlic and celery salt
1/2 cup breadcrumbs
3 tablespoons Parmesan cheese, grated
salt and pepper
1 egg

Meat gravy


Mix flour, eggs and enough water to make a stiff dough; knead 20 minutes.

Pour olive oil over dough and knead until smooth; let stand 1/2 hour.

Roll dough out very thin on a floured board, and cut into rounds about 3 inches in diameter.

Mix above ingredients together; place a spoonful of the mixture on each round of dough, fold dough in half and press edges together with a fork.

Boil ravioli in stock about 20 minutes; remove from stock and place on a hot dish.

Thicken a little of the stock with meat gravy, and pour over the ravioli.

Serve sprinkled with cheese.

Serves 12.
