It’s #NationalPastaDay and over here at The Avenue, we’d like to share our mouth-watering Pear and Ricotta Ravioli recipe to satisfy those mid-week carb carvings that we are all too familiar with! This luxurious nutty recipe is perfect for the family and ideal to settle that post-work stress.

So kick back, pour yourself a large glass of Pinot Noir and if you’d like to celebrate National Pasta Day in style, here’s our recipe…


  • 200g of Flour
  • 2 Eggs


  • 125g ricotta
  • 3 pears, peeled, cored and quartered
  • 20g butter
  • 30 fl oz red wine
  • 10 fl oz balsamic vinegar
  • sprig of thyme
  • zest and juice of 1 lemon
  • salt and pepper
  • 100g parmesan, grated


  • 60g butter
  • walnuts, crushed
  • rocket and parmesan to serve


Pop the flour on a work surface, make a well in the middle and add the egg

Mix the ingredients and knead till fully combined

Wrap in clingfilm and rest

In a saucepan, fry the pears in the butter and add the wine, thyme, lemon zest and juice. Carry on cooking until the pairs are soft but still holding their shape

When the pears are cooked, cut into small squares and fold into the ricotta and parmesan. Season!

Roll out your pasta on the widest setting for 6 times to the last setting

Put a blob of filling down one end of the pasta sheet leaving a gap in-between then fold over and seal making sure there is no air in the pocket

Melt the butter in a pan till light brown, add the walnuts and cook until slightly darker

Boil pasta for a few minutes or until al-dente

Coat the pasta in the butter sauce and serve with rocket and parmesan. Enjoy!
