Mushroom Ravioli Filling
- Soak dried mushrooms in enough boiling water to cover about 15 minutes or until soft. Drain, discarding liquid. Squeeze mushrooms to remove additional liquid; finely chop mushrooms.
- Meanwhile, in a medium skillet, cook fresh mushrooms in hot oil over medium-high heat about 5 minutes or until liquid is evaporated. Add porcini mushrooms, parsley, and garlic; cook and stir for 1 minute. Remove from heat. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
- In a medium bowl, combine egg yolk, ricotta cheese, and mushroom mixture. Cover and chill until needed.
- In a large mixing bowl, add all of the ingredients, and mix until the ingredients come together to form a dough. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface, and knead until smooth and elastic, about 10 to 15 minutes. Wrap in plastic wrap and set aside.
- Preheat the oven to 350 degree F.
- Combine the beef, veal, onion, celery, carrots, salt, and pepper in a roasting pan and roast until cooked through, about 1 hour. Let cool.
- Add the spinach, then grind ingredients in a meat grinder with a fine grind. Add the eggs and cheese, and mix well to create a paste-like texture.
- Roll out the dough on a floured surface using a rolling pin. Make a large, very thin layer of dough. Spread out a thin layer of filling on half of one side of the dough, using a spatula. Fold the dough end over the filling side of the dough. Mark the filled dough with a ravioli marker (ravioli rolling pin). Cut ravioli out using a ravioli cutter. Freeze until hard.
- Make an egg wash by mixing together the eggs and milk. Add the ravioli to the wash, then dip in the seasoned bread crumbs. Refreeze until ready to fry.
- Preheat a deep fryer to 350 degree F.
- Fry the ravioli until golden brown. Serve hot on a plate sprinkled with freshly grated Parmesan on top and tomato sauce on the side.
