- high quality olive oil

HOW TO MAKE THE PASTA DOUGH
Pasta dough - part 1
- on a clean table top, combine the semolina flour and 7 large egg yolks together until you have a firm dough.
- Wrap the pasta dough in cling film and let it rest for half an hour at room temperature.
Soak the morels in boiling water for 30 minutes.
Rinse them well and slice them into thin slices.
Fry the morels at medium high heat with the shallots, garlic, rosemary and thyme, add the pine seeds and saute until they are golden brown.
Turn of the heat and let the filling cool down a bit, then add ricotta enough for it to stick together, Season with salt, pepper and olive oil.
Pasta part 2
Shape the dough into a long sausage and flatten it with your fingers, so that it fit's in the pasta machine.
Dust the dough with a little flour so that it does not get stuck in the machine.
