Meanwhile, make the cassata filling. Heat the sugar syrup to 100°C and pour over the ricotta cheese. Allow to cool and mix with the remaining ingredients in a large bowl

Pass the dough through a pasta machine several times, decreasing the thickness setting each time to create a thin sheet of pasta. Cut the sheet in half

Pipe the cassata filling in spaced intervals along 1 sheet of the pasta. Place the other sheet of pasta on top of the first and press out any air pockets around the filling

Cut out the ravioli with a square pasta cutter or fluted pasta wheel and leave to dry on a floured surface
