Walnut sauce:
1 large bowl of shelled walnuts

Fry to brown the finely chopped onion and add the greens. Boil the potatoes, drain and mash. Mix together and season.
Prepare the pasta by adding the flour gradually to the other ingredients to make a soft elastic dough. Cut off lumps of pasta dough, roll into lengths and cut into dice. Flatten each piece, place a little filling on it and fold into shape.
Bring a pan of water with a few slices of potato to the boil; when the water is boiling and the potatoes cooked, add the ravioli. When they return to the surface they are ready to serve.
Make the walnut sauce by crushing the walnuts with the seasoning into a smooth paste, and adding a few tablespoons of the cooking water. Serve the ravioli with the sauce.
