31/2 cups flour
1 tsp salt
1 egg
1 egg white
3/4 cup water

1 package frozen spinach, drained and all liquid squeezed out
2 eggs
1-1/2 cups ground beef or turkey
2 green onions, chopped fine
1-15 oz container ricotta cheese
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 tsp garlic powder

Dough: Stir together 3 cups flour and 1 tsp salt. Make a well in center. In a small mixing bowl combine eggs and water and mix well with a fork. Add to flour mixture and mix well. Turn dough out and knead enough of the remaining flour to make the dough an elastic texture. Divide the dough and let rest 10 minutes. Roll into 16x6 rectangles. Cut dough into 2 inch wide strips. Place a rounded tsp of spinach filling 1 inch apart. Lay another strip on top and seal edges.
Cook the spinach, drain and squeeze all liquid out of it. Combine spinach, 2 eggs, ground meat, onion, ricotta cheese, parmesan cheese, and spices in a medium bowl. Mix well. Drop onto dough as described above.
Boil the ravioli for 10 to 12 minutes until done. Add sauce and sprinkle with parmesan cheese.
