    For the filling, mix the ingredients together and let stand.

    Put the dough through a pasta machine for about six times to get the right consistency. Make two long plates. It needs to be almost see through- thin.

    Once the pasta plates are ready, put a small portion of the smooth mass on the pasta plate, place another plate very tightly on top and cut round raviolis with a ring mold. Seal the ravioli with water. Repeat. Boil for 4 -5 minutes.

    Serve with parsnip sauce. Garnish with salmon roe and grated parmesan. You can also serve raviolis with melted butter or top.

  • Parsnip Sauce::

    Sauté the parsnip on a saucepan, add shallot and sauté for a little bit. Add white wine, cream, water and white wine vinegar and let simmer until the parsnip softens. Season with salt and pepper and puree into a smooth sauce with a hand held mixer and add a hint of truffle oil. Garnish with chive. Serve with the whitefish raviolis.
