The popular ravioli dish Cappellacci is a classic of Italian cuisine. Head chef Andrea Quaranta of the Rome restaurant Necci dal 1924 fills his cappellacci with peas, artichokes, and beans.Cappellacci for 4 people For the pasta: 250g flour 100g wheat semolina 250g egg yolk 1 egg white For the filling: 100g fresh fava beans 200g fresh peas 2 small artichokes 2 spring onions 50g olive oil salt and pepper 2 eggs 50g pecorino 50g parmesan black pepper 8 slices of pancetta Mix together the pasta ingredients and knead. Wash and julienne the artichokes and spring onions. Fry for 4-5 minutes in olive oil, and season with salt and pepper.Shuck the peas. Blanch them in a bit of broth seasoned with salt and pepper, and puree into a cream. Shell the fava beans and blanch them to remove their waxy outer coating. Once tender, cover them with a bit of olive oil and set aside. Combine two eggs with the pecorino, parmesan and black pepper into a sauce. Bake the pancetta for 10 minutes at 170 degrees Celcius. Cut the pasta dough into circles about 10 centimeters in diameter. Add a teaspoon of filling, fold the pasta together in the form of a half-moon and seal the edges. Boil the cappellacci for 2-3 minutes in salt water and then fry on both sides until crispy. Distribute the cream with the peas onto the plates, place the cappellacci on top of it, decorate with the fava beans and cover in cheese sauce. Top with pancetta and season with pepper.
