- In a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat, brown the sausage meat in the oil while breaking it slightly. Add the spinach and stir well. Transfer to a bowl and let cool. Add the eggs and cheese to the meat mixture and mix thoroughly. Refrigerate while preparing the dough.
- On a floured work surface, divide the dough into four pieces and shape into rectangles to make it easier to work through the pasta machine. Roll a rectangle of dough at a time, dusting it with flour if it becomes sticky, down to number 5 thickness. Place the rolled out dough rectangles onto the floured surface. With a 7.5 cm (3-inch) round cookie cutter, cut 48 discs.
- With a spoon, drop about 15 ml (1 tbsp) of the filling in the centre of 24 discs. With a pastry brush, moisten the edges with a little water. Cover with a second disc of dough and press around the filling to seal the ravioli. Place on a lightly floured baking sheet. Cover with a clean cloth and refrigerate until ready to cook.
- In a large pot of salted boiling water, cook a few ravioli at a time, 6 to 8 minutes or until al dente. Drain. Serve with Tomato Sauce or in Sage Butter, or both.
After preparing the ravioli, you have a little sausage stuffing leftover? Why not add it to tomato sauce and serve over pasta.
If you have a 15 ml (1 tbsp) ice cream scoop, use it to place the stuffing in the centre of the dough. This little trick will save you time and make the job much less messy.
