But I can't get the pasta to stick together. Any ideas? I've had to par cook the pasta but it still won't stick.

tats63, I'm assuming that you're using store-bought pasta sheets and in that case I wonder what you used to try to make the pasta stick - water?
IMO store-bought pasta sheets are well-coated to prevent them sticking together in their packaging so for that reason the best option, I think, would be to use lightly beaten egg to get the 'stick-together' effect that you need to retain the ravioli filling within the pasta.

Hope that helps. :-))

Yes was store bought pasta. Complete disaster! Tasted nice and we called it deconstructed ravioli lol. Will try egg next time thanks.

I would egg it and squash the edges with a fork.

make your own.
You don't even need a pasta machine, just a rolling pin.

Yeah I did squish the edges with a fork. Just didn't work at all.

Chef_tats63, Jan 17, 2:36 pm

i would think the pasta will end up dense and not that nice, pop it through a pasta machine or make your own as lythande said I make my own and nothing is as delicate or delish as homemade, I never really liked pasta until I tried it homemade
