Those Who Have Died
by Suicide







1 tsp. salt
olive oil
12 c. sifted flour
15 eggs

Take the flour and form a bowl on the table. Add eggs and salt. Beat the eggs well with a fork and gradually start to pull the flour in. Soon it is time to get the hands in there and mix. It should be real yellow and very smooth when all blended you may have to knead it like bread dough. When mixed, rub dough all over with olive oil and let sit, covered with a towel, for about an hour. You are ready to roll. It is very elastic and a pasta machine is great. Roll the dough until you feel it is thin enough I usually put my hand under and if I can see the shape of my hand it is thin enough.


4 lbs. Ricotta cheese
4 eggs
salt to taste
pepper to taste
1-2 bunches parsley (or to taste), chopped



Mix all ingredients, and voila make a ravioli. I place on the counter on a white sheet which is lightly floured and after a bit turn them over to dry on both sides. Sometimes I flash freeze them so when they are place in a bag they do not stick together. You should get 125 or so. We like them on the bigger side.

Note: Good Luck and think of Ralphie when you make them. Argia, Mother of My Beautiful Raphael

Note: I made this for my 3 sons for Christmas one year and put them in a blue baking dish.. A note was attached that "When you want more, return the blue dish empty and I will return it full" Sure enough every couple weeks one or the other would return the empty dish.....Fred's dish came in on a regular weekly schedule. He really liked it.
