Portobello Mushroom Ravioli

What do you do when you have a good amount of baby Portobello mushrooms, relatively strong muscles and the whole afternoon? Make mushroom ravioli!

Among all the mushrooms, Portobellos have got to be my favorite, probably because it of it’s meaty and earthy taste.  I love grilling these mushrooms because doing so intensifies the flavor.  Considering that these mushrooms are quite pricey, I wasn’t about to let them rot in the ref and go to waste.

I’ve only made ravioli once before and was not that successful. I remember that first batch being too thick so the ravioli wasn’t as delicate as it should be. This time, I made sure to make it as thin as possible and since I was only using a rolling pin, I was in for a good workout. Making ravioli is quite easy, only requiring eggs and flour as the main ingredients.  The challenge is in the rolling. Making this dish is really a labor of love. (My forearms are hurting as I type this.

For the filling, I cooked the mushrooms on a stove-top grill

until soft and caramelized five white onions.  I chopped them coarsely in a food processor along with a few sprigs of flat leaf parsely, half a cup of mozzarella cheese, garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper.  This is a very simple but very flavorful ravioli recipe that could stand alone or go well with a basil pesto sauce or a marinara sauce.   I thought it went perfectly with a glass of white wine.

Cut out circles about 3” in diameter using a cookie cutter. Place 1 ½ tsp. of filling onto on circle. Making sure that sides are moist, cover with another circle and secure sides by pinching.  Boil ravioli in water for 5 minutes ot until they float to the top. Serve with a drizzle of olive oil or sauce of your choice.

    I just used baby portobellos chopped up in a spaghetti dish last night, which I really love, but I totally went through the roof when I saw this recipe – it looks so delicious!

    Where do you find portobellos? Are they easily available in supermarkets in Metro Manila? Don’t they cost the earth (I mean, even more than shiitakes)?

      Hi, aravis! I usually get my portobellos at any Rustan’s supermarket. They are a little pricier than shitake. The baby portobellos were around P190 for 200grams if I remember right. The large portobellos are more expensive of course. You can also find these at the weekend markets in Salcedo and Legaspi. Good luck in finding them (but you shouldn’t have a problem). :)

    I made this tonight for new years day and it turned out SO WELL. I always thought that it would require more to taste good but not so. I omitted the parsley and added a dash of balsamic vinegar and sherry. very very good.

    not to sure where you guys live but in the united states there about 5 to 10 dollars for a nice batch of 8 to 10 mushooms!

    Buy regular white mushrooms..place in refrig in a brown paper bag until they begin to open or turn brown. They will taste similar to wild mushrooms and are so much better, just like the wild I picked with my dad as a young girl. This also works with scrambled eggs similar to an english breakfast with a sautéed half of tomato. Yummy.
