  3. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and let it rest for 30 minutes.
  4. In a bowl, combine the ricotta cheese, chopped spinach, Parmesan cheese, nutmeg, salt, and pepper. Mix well.
  5. Roll out the pasta dough into thin sheets and spoon small portions of the ricotta-spinach mixture onto one sheet.
  6. Place another sheet on top and press around the filling to remove air pockets and seal the ravioli.
  7. Cut the ravioli into individual pieces and cook in boiling salted water until they float to the surface.
