A quick and easy way to make your own ravioli/perogi dough. No need for a grocery list or fancy kitchen skills for this recipe as only three ingredients are needed!

A perfect dough if you are needing an eggless pasta.

This recipe will yield about 48 raviolis or 10 large 6" perogies.

I include instructions to make the dough by hand or with a food processor.

For this Instructable, the photos will show the making of large dinner size perogies with the dough.

3 cups of all purpose flour

2 Tablespoons of Olive oil (melted butter/margarine may be substituted)

1 cup of water

1 teaspoon salt (optional)

A large bowl and fork
                or
A food processor

Step 2: Mixing the Ingredients:

Picture of Mixing the Ingredients:

 1. Put three cups of flour into a large bowl, making a well in the center.

                                                 or

      Put three cups of flour into a food processor - secure the lid.

   2. Add the wet ingredients to the well and very slowly mix together with a fork incorporating a little flour at a time. Knead by hand for about ten minutes, rest covered for half an hour. Repeat kneading until the dough is smooth and silky/slightly sticky.

                                                   or

        Add the wet ingredients to the processor's fill tube pulsing until well mixed. A ball of dough should form and pull away from the edges of the bowl. Continue to pulse for about one minute kneading the dough. Let rest in the bowl for at least one half an hour to help relax the gluten.

 
 3. The pasta can now rolled with a pin or it can be shaped with a machine.


I always make my ravioli with eggs - I have a lot of organically raised eggs from our chicks but this recipe looks simple and good. I also have very fond memories of eating perogi in the Polish restaurants in London and always wanted a good recipe, which wasn't just flour and water so will try it. We also make the baked Italian ravioli here which is made with flour, olive oil and white wine - I usually use red, which makes dark pink pasta, unusual but delicious.

A lot of perogi are made without eggs by using some of the potato water from boiling potatoes to make perogi filling. The potato water is hardly water at that point is very thick form starch, so it works really well. There are quite a few recipes online that use the potato water.
I know your comment was from a few months ago, but someone else could always see this and might try it if the above recipe doesn't work out for them!
It's always good to share this information. I never got the hang of German potato pancakes (kartoffelpuffe) until I realised I needed to keep the potato water, which remains when you decant of the excess liquid pressed out from the grated onion and potato. Thanks for the tip. All the best, Pavlovafowl aka Sue
I hate to admit this but I have only had the frozen ones. I can’t wait to try these.
Oh yum. Adding this to my favorites to give it a try. :D
