Preparation

Make the egg pasta following our basic recipe, only this time add a little chopped parsley to the mixture so as to liven it up somewhat. Chop the walnuts coarsely by hand and mix them with gorgonzola and cream until you have a creamy filling. Roll out the dough with a pasta maker and place the filling at intervals with a teaspoon. Cover the pasta with the fillings with another sheet of pasta dough, sticking it well to the one below. With a pastry cutter, cut out your ravioli. Cook for 4 minutes in salted water. Serve with a drizzle of melted butter and a few nuts as a garnish.

Tips
Gorgonzola is a famous Italian cheese, known throughout the world. Great on its own, it also lends itself to the creation of many other dishes, sauces, and creamy fillings. Gorgonzola can be left for a long time in the refrigerator as it will acquire a stronger and improved flavour.
Trivia
For gorgonzola and walnut ravioli you can use spicy or sweet gorgonzola, depending on whether you prefer a milder or sharper flavour; and, when mixing everything together, to make it creamier you could add 2-3 tablespoons of mascarpone or ricotta. Finally, cook the ravioli in plenty of boiling salted water for a few minutes, as soon as they come to the surface they are ready; then drain thoroughly, being careful not to break them.
