How Long to Boil Fresh Ravioli

Ravioli has been blessing the lives of those who taste it for centuries. These thin pockets of pasta, filled with cheese, vegetables or meat, are popular with tomato or cream sauces and can be baked, fried, or boiled.

If you have ever taken the time to make ravioli at home, carefully stuffing each dumpling and sealing each edge, only to have it split open during boiling, you may be searching for a remedy.

Ravioli was first made as squares but over time it has been made into different shapes as well like circles or half circles.

Ravioli is made by taking large sheets of a basic pasta dough, rolling the dough very thin through a pasta machine or with a rolling pin.

Cook the pasta too quickly and the pockets will break. Cook it too long and the pasta will become mushy. Cook too little and the pasta will be too dense.

If you are cooking fresh or homemade ravioli, the pasta typically needs to boil for just 4-6 minutes or even less.

If you are boiling your ravioli, an easy way to know it is done is when it begins to float to the top of the water. As the ravioli pops up to the surface, remove it with a slotted spoon.

You should also avoid stirring your ravioli too frequently while it is cooking. Your stirring may cause the pasta to pop open.
