Judy’s Grandma Bombaderi’s Ravioli Dough 6 cups of flour 2 eggs 1/8 cup of oil 2 tsp of salt 1 ½ cups of water Mix the dough using your electric mixer’s dough hook. Mix until dough forms a nice ball and continue to mix for ten minutes. Wrap with clear wrap. Let set for a minimum of one hour. To roll out the dough you will need flour for dusting the flat service to avoid sticking, a rolling pin, a ravioli roller, and a ravioli cuter. Don still has an imported board and rolling pin that arrived by boat after traveling from Europe across the ocean and through the Isthmus of Panama in the late 1800’s.
