About This Class
After you learned how to make homemade fresh pasta from scratch in my other Skillshare class, you may be wondering what to do next—you can make nearly anything from flat sheets of dough, so it's time to learn how to make stuffed pasta. In this class, we'll be learning how to make tortellini and ravioli, as well as two types of filling (cheese-based and mushroom-based).
(NOTE: This class is based on the assumption you've already finished the "Homemade Fresh Pasta from Scratch" class on Skillshare. It covers the basics of making dough and rolling it out. If you're stuck, check that video out and come back!)
You can do this with just a rolling pin, knife, and fork, but it'll be considerably tougher. If you choose to get some, I've ranked them in order of importance:
- Pasta Machine (I use one from Imperia)
- Pastry and Ravioli Cutter Wheel (if you don't have one, a pizza cutter will do).
Extra Helpful Tools:
- A Pastry Brush
- Ravioli Press
- Ravioli Stamp
- 4" Cookie Cutter (for Tortellini)
- Prep Bowls
- Spider Strainer

Hey there! My name is Sarah, and I've always been such a fan of pasta. When I was a kid, the cooks at my camp called me Noodles because I'd always come up to ask what was for lunch. My ideal (lazy) lunch is just a bowl of fettucine with some olive oil and fresh parmesan cheese. About six years ago, my roommate came home from the farmer's market with some homemade black pasta and I was floored with an epiphany—I could make this! I could make my favorite thing!
I've been making pasta by hand ever since. I love adding colors and shapes to the dough, pressing herbs in the sheets and making decorated pappardelle, or making stuffed pastas like tortellini and ravioli. I recently purchased a machine to make rigatoni and penne, which has been such a thrill.
I also love to draw—I just finished a 365 project where I draw shit every day. Literally: I draw the word "shit." Every day.
