Lobster Ravioli Ingredients
To make this ravioli you will need to make pasta dough and the filling.
3 ingredient Pasta Dough:
- Pasta flour-I recommend to use Italian pasta flour 00. You can buy it at amazon or get it from Ditalia, igourmet, Walmart or King Arthur Flour.
- Large eggs
Lobster Ravioli Filling:
- Lobster meat – You can use the meat from tail, claws, knuckles and legs. No need to precook it.
- Lemon juice - Adjust the amount of lemon juice to your liking.
- Garlic cloves – Make sure to mince garlic using a microplane grater. Ravioli pasta cooks fast and bigger pieces of garlic might be raw.
- Black pepper & salt
How to make ravioli dough
Making ravioli from scratch definitely requires more efforts and work than throwing dried store-bought pasta into a pot of boiling salted water.
But it is not difficult at all! You can make it by hand or in a food processor.
Personally I always do it in a food processor because it is the quickest and easiest way. Simply put all the ingredients (flour, eggs and salt) into a bowl of your food processor and pulse until you get a crumbly mixture. Then, transfer it on a lightly floured surface and knead for 1-2 minutes or until smooth. Cover and allow to rest for 15 minutes. You can refrigerate the dough for 1 day.
How to make Lobster Ravioli
Once the dough is ready, divide it into four equal pieces. Cover three pieces with plastic. Work with one dough piece at a time.
Dust a rolling pin with flour and roll each dough piece into a large rectangle (thin as paper). If the dough sheet is too thick, it will not be easy to use a ravioli mould.
Dust the mould with flour. Place the sheet over the ravioli mould, press the dough in the pouches and fill them with lobster filling (about 1 teaspoon). Cover with another sheet and press with your hands to seal the edges. Roll across until the edges are visible. Remove ravioli from the mould.

Chop the lobster meat into small pieces. Add the garlic and lemon juice. Season with black pepper and salt. You can add cream cheese or fresh herbs like basil or parsley. I like to keep it simple.
How to cook lobster ravioli
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil, add ravioli and cook for 3-4 minutes. Drain. Ravioli pasta is done! But you can melt butter in a large pan, add the ravioli and cook further for 2-3 minutes or until golden.
