  • 1
    Make the filling: Grate your onion and garlic to a paste. Brown the turkey in a hot pan. When it is fully cooked and brown, add the onion. Cook on medium about 5-10 minutes to cook the onion. Add the garlic and cook 1 minute. Next, add the tomato paste and cook 5 minutes, stirring often. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Finally add the parmesan cheese and mix well.

    Make the dough: Mix the dough ingredients well and knead for about 5 minutes until it comes together. Allow to rest for at least 15 minutes before using.
  • 3
    Make the ravioli: Roll out your dough in your pasta roller, at first folding over many times on the widest setting to knead, then slowly making it thinner until it is on the thinnest setting. Roll out a sheet and place it on the work space. Place about a tablespoon or less of filling onto the pasta sheet every 2 inches. With a wet finger, dampen the area around the filling. Top with another piece of rolled out dough and seal around the filling. With a ravioli cutter, cut into heart shapes.

    Allow the ravioli to dry on a piece of fabric.
  • 5
    Make the sauce: Cook the oil and flour on medium high, whisking often until it smells nutty and is lightly browned. Add the cream, whisking often. Bring to just a simmer and the mixture will thicken. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly before stirring in the cheese.

    Boil the ravioli and toss in the sauce. Top with basil and serve.

More About This Recipe
  • Going out to dinner on Valentine's Day is one of the biggest ordeals of the year. You need to call months in advance for reservations, every restaurant is packed, and most places do prix fixe menus. You know, an excuse to sell their same old meals at a mark up for the holiday. Not only that, for me it’s sort of awkward knowing that every person in the room is trying to have a romantic evening. Just like New Year’s Eve is known as amateur night at the bars, I consider Valentines Day to be amateur night at restaurants, and I stay away. Far away! Cooking for your loved one is a much more impressive gesture anyway. Especially if you make these super cute heart-shaped Valentine ravioli. I actually used ground turkey for this, but beef would work just fine.The pasta dough is flour, egg, and beet. I strongly suggest using beets over food coloring for this pasta. It’s all natural, adds a subtle earthy flavor, and creates an stunning vibrant color. A heart-shaped cookie cutter would work for cutting out the heart shapes, but I really like my ravioli cutter. Let the ravioli dry on a sheet. If you do this on a plate, the bottoms of the ravioli won’t dry out properly. A delicious and beautiful meal. If your loved one isn't impressed by this, you should probably break up with them!
