Reuben Ravioli Make a Great Appetizer!

We had the ingredients to make a reuben recipe, however, I just felt like something different. The reuben ravioli were an appetizer idea for a family birthday party. I whipped together the fresh pasta recipe on my site and went from there. I was really happy with the results! The reuben ravioli were served with the 1000 island dressing recipe as a sauce. I have made them a few times since and they have always wowed the guests! This recipe does not take long to make and is well worth the time.

Here is a YouTube link to a video showing the reuben ravioli being made!

The pasta for the reuben ravioli

Sheets of pasta dough are available at grocery stores. Add some caraway seeds to the pasta for the flavor of rye bread! The caraway seeds do cause some tearing if rolled through a pasta rolling machine too thinly. Just have some patience and it will work out. If you have never made ravioli before do not worry! It is not that difficult.

Once you have a sheet rolled out, just place the filling every 1-1/2 inches or so. Fold the other side over and use your finger to press the air out. If you watch the Youtube video in this post, you will see that I formed the raviolis before I cut them. Have a baking tray lined with parchment paper that you can line the cut raviolis on after cutting. Crimp the edges of the ravioli to seal if needed.

The filling

The filling is simple! Sauerkraut, corned beef, and swiss cheese! The corned beef needs to be cooked. Cleveland Kitchen makes a great sauerkraut here in Cleveland. Change the ratios of the filling to meet your tastes! Some people are not fans of sauerkraut. You can also replace the corned beef with turkey for a turkey reuben ravioli! The reuben ravioli are a great change up from the everyday reuben sandwich. I hope you enjoy them!
