Lemon Herb Ricotta Agnolotti

If you’ve never made your own ricotta, this recipe is the perfect excuse. Folded with fresh herbs, and stuffed inside tender homemade pasta dough, this agnolotti is perfect for springtime — especially when topped with pea shoots and extra fragrant herbs. Find the recipe below.

Fill a ziploc bag (or piping bag if you’re fancy like that) with ricotta filling. Pipe filling across the bottom of the pasta sheet in a straight, even line. Pull the bottom edge of the pasta up and over the filling. Seal the agnolotti by carefully molding the pasta over the filling and pressing lightly with your index finger to seal the edge of the dough to the pasta sheet. Set aside, cover with a towel, and continue until you’ve used up your dough. You will probably have filling leftover! Double the dough recipe or use the filling for later.
