Instructions:

For the Dough:

  1. Combine the mozzarella cheese and cream cheese in a microwave-safe bowl. Melt in the microwave in 30-second bursts, stirring in between.

  3. Knead the dough on a parchment paper-covered surface until it becomes smooth and elastic.

  5. Refrigerate the sheets for 30 minutes.

For the Filling:

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine ricotta cheese, cooked and chopped spinach, Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Mix well.

Assembling the Ravioli:

  1. Take the dough sheets out of the refrigerator.
  2. Spoon the filling onto one of the sheets in evenly spaced mounds.
  3. Place the second sheet on top of the filling-covered sheet.
  4. Press around each mound of filling to seal the two sheets together.
  5. Use a ravioli cutter or a knife to cut out individual ravioli.

Cooking the Ravioli:

  2. Gently drop the ravioli into the boiling water and cook for about 2-3 minutes or until they float to the surface.
