Pasta filled with Ricotta and Wild Garlic
The Weingut Thomas Schenk in Randersacker is known for its good wine. Thomas not only produces really good wine in his family business, but also does so as responsibly and sustainably as possible.
On seven hectares of land, Thomas grows grape varieties such as Silvaner, which is widespread in Franconia, but also Riesling, Pinot Noir and Scheurebe. Everything is done by hand there. You can taste that! And if you have a bottle of Schenk'schen wine at home, here's the recipe to match.
Ingredients for 4 people
For the dough:
- 300 g durum wheat semolina
- 3 eggs
For the filling:
- 250 g ricotta
- 1 bunch wild garlic
- olive oil
- Salt and pepper
For tossing or serving:
- Lemon thyme
Knead 300 g durum wheat semolina well with 3 eggs, wrap in cling film and leave to rest for about 30 minutes.
