Tofu and walnuts Ravioli

Ingredients for the dough:
300gr flour, 60gr Ener-g (equal 3 eggs)
Ingredients for the filling: 150gr tofu, 50gr walnuts, 15 basil leaves, 10 mint leaves, olive oil, salt

Drain the tofu from its own water, put it in a bowl and smash it with a fork. Crash the walnuts with a mixer along with mint and basil and add this to the tofu. Adjust with salt and let it rest while you prepare the dough. Mix the flour and Ener-g. Add enough water and work the dough until it becomes soft and elastic. Let it rest for 30 minutes. Have your pasta machine ready to get a few sheets of thin pasta. Use number 5 on your machine.

Cut approximately 8cm squares from the sheets and put about 1 tsp of filling in each. Fold them in a triangle and push well the borders in order to avoid the filling to slip out while cooking. Have a big saucepan ready with boiling salty water. Add the ravioli and let it cook counting 3 minutes from when the water starts boiling again.

Dress it with a simple tomato sauce made by frying a bit of garlic in oil and canned tomatoes. Garnish with fresh mint and serve immediately.

Note: the heart has come out there absolutely by chance, but it must mean something! :)
