Cover and let stand for 30 minutes to allow the dough to "ripen"
Roll into a 16"X18" rectangle, and brush half of the dough with the egg white.
Arrange a teaspoon of filling over dough, leaving 1" a space between sections.
Fold other half of dough over the top, and press dough starting at the center, then around
the edges of each ravioli section.
Cut with ravioli wheel ( pizza cutter or a sharp knife will work too)
