Gluten-Free Homemade Ravioli – without a machine

This recipe is from Glutenfreeda, so she deserves the credit for this. It worked for me without a bread machine, so I know if you follow these simple steps, you will have success too.


2-1/2 cups GF flour mix
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon olive oil
5 eggs
1 egg yolk


1. Place your GF flour in a food processor.

2. Add the salt, oil and eggs.

3. Pulse processor until mixture resembles dough.

4. Remove from the bowl and place on a just lightly GF floured surface. Be sure not too much flour!

5. Knead your dough, folding over and turning over until the right consistency appears like bread dough. If the dough gets too dry and just add your egg white. It shouldn’t need it. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and cover.

6. Allow the dough to rest for at least 20 minutes and not less. Be patient.

At this point the recipe calls for actions with the pasta machine which I did not use. I know many people want to make pasta that do not have machines, so I tried this and it worked.

7. I rolled out the dough carefully with my rolling pin and then cut it with the ravioli cutter.

8. I changed the recipe again by placing filling in the middle and resting another square or round on top and sealing the edges. Put a touch of water on the edges and seal and use a fork to push down the edges better.

9. Cook the ravioli just a few at a time in boiling, salted water. Cook for about 2 minutes if the inside is not uncooked meat you are using. If you are using uncooked meat in your filling boil is a 4-5 minutes at a low rolling boil. They will start to float.

10. Drain your ravioli  in a colander  if you do not have a slotted spoon.

  1. Wow I can’t believe you were so successful with this recipe without even a bread machine. That’s great to hear! I don’t have a bread machine (although I should probably get one by now since I’m gluten-fre, huh? but I don’t really like to eat that much bread) and I’ve been dying to make my own gluten-free ravioli and I just didn’t think it was possible. of course, how silly is that? Back in the day when ravioli was invented there weren’t bread machines. So it definitely makes sense that you can make the ravioli this way. Keeps things simple doesn’t it?;-)

  2. This is good to know that you don’t need a machine! I have one but I detest having to take it out of the cabinets and use it for some reason…guess I’m just lazy LOL! I can’t wait to try these though. I love ravioli so much…

  3. I had no idea making ravioli would be so simple! At least it sounds that way anyway from your recipe! My husband and sons are huge ravioli fans so I’m going to have to make this myself although I’m sure it won’t compare to Conte’s and DePuma’s raviolis which we all love very much. But you never know…I do make some cakes better than any of our favorite gluten-free companies. Who knows? I could end up becoming a pro ravioli maker!!!

  4. This seems like a very big project to get into, but when I read the directions it actually didn’t seem very complicated at all!(Surprise, surprise!) SO I think I’m going to do this one with my teenage celiac daughter. I’m turning her into a master glutenfree chef before we ship her off to college next year. I think we’ll have a lot of fun with this recipe and we don’t have a breadmaker either. Thanks for posting it!

  5. Hi this is a great recipe because I do own a Breadman and I like it very much but it seems like a total hassle sometimes to take it out and use it. I like to do things by hand when possible!

  6. Oh man I just found out I’m allergic to eggs too and I’m super bummed seeing this recipe because can you really replace 6 eggs with an egg replacer?? I doubt it!

  7. My Sicilian great grandmother never used a bread machine to make ravioli so why should we?? This is how it was supposed to be made. Thanks for sharing this, Tina!
