For the meat filling:
  • Combine the beef, veal, onion, celery, carrots, salt, and pepper in a roasting pan and roast until cooked through, about 1 hour. Let cool.

Instructions Checklist
  • 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.

To bread the ravioli:
  • 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.

Instructions Checklist
