Gluten Free Mushroom Ravioli with Slow Braised Beef in a Red Wine Sauce
How to make the best homemade gluten free mushroom raviolis!
Gluten free food options have come a long way, but finding a really good gluten free ravioli often seems like a futile effort. That’s why it’s time to start making your own. It may seem like a daunting task, but these raviolis made with fresh egg pasta and a creamy mushroom filling are actually extremely easy to make and they are beyond delicious.
We love these raviolis equally paired with slow-braised beef in a thick, silky sauce or as a simplistic lunch with olive oil and fresh shaved cheese!

- Mix together your dry ingredients and scoop it onto a clean countertop, making a mound. Make a well at the center of the mound.
- Add the egg, egg yolks, and olive oil to the center of the well.
- Use a fork or a whisk to beat the egg mixture, slowly incorporating the dry mixture until your dough has formed. *Should your dough become too dry, simply add a bit of warm water. If it is too wet to form a dough ball, give it a dusting of flour.
- Once you have a solid ball of dough, cut it in 2-4 pieces. Cover the portions you will not be using immediately so they aren’t exposed to air. Roll each piece out flat and run it through your pasta machine, several times at the thinnest setting. Because ravioli includes two layers of pasta, you want each layer to be extremely thin, to ensure you it doesn’t overpower your filling.
- Cut the sheet in half, crosswise. Flour dust a clean surface and lay out your first layer of dough.
- Use a basting brush to slather a layer of egg wash across the top of the pasta layer.
- Using a spoon, scoop the filling onto the first layer of pasta.The size and shape of your raviolis, as well as the tool you will be using, will determine how much mushroom filling you will need to use for each ravioli and how close together the scoops need to be. We used a 2.5” round stamp and placed about a tablespoon of filling into each ravioli.
- Gently place the other pasta sheet precisely on top of the first so they match up. If using a stamp, you will press down with the mound of filling directly in the center of the stamp. If using a cutter, you will run the wheel directly between rows and columns of raviolis. Other tools for cutting raviolis also exist, but there are so many variations, we can’t possibly go through them all. Please follow your package instructions for your device.
- Find another clean surface to dust with flour and lay your raviolis in a single layer, dusting the tops with more flour.
- Using the remaining sections of your doughball, repeat steps 5-9 until all of your mushroom raviolis are formed.
- Bring a large pot of salted water to boil and drop your raviolis in one at a time. Do not overcrowd. You will know your ravioli is done when the pockets expand slightly (about 7 minutes). Use a slotted spoon to remove them from the water and gently set them in the dish they will be served in.
- Cover with your favorite sauce, or simply a bit of extra virgin olive oil, parmesan, and a sprinkle of fresh herbs.
