      1/2   ts           Salt
    1       tb           Olive oil
 
   BASIL PASTA DOUGH:
   
   Parmesan cheese, grated
   
   Pasta Dough:  In food processor (or blender), puree basil, eggs, oil, and
   salt.  (If using blender, pour into bowl; stir in enough flour to make
   stiff dough.) Add 1 1/2 cups flour to processor; process for 5 seconds.
   With motor running, add enough flour so dough forms a ball. Turn dough out
   onto lightly floured surface, and knead for a few minutes until smooth and
   elastic, adding flour as necessary.  If dough was not mixed in food
   processor, knead for about 5 minutes.  Cut dough in half and shape into
   balls.  Cover dough with inverted bowl; rest for 1/2 hour.
   
   Veal Filling:  Heat oil in skillet; add veal, onion, and garlic. Saute
   until veal is cooked and moisture has evaporated, about 5 minutes. Remove
   from heat; cool slightly.  In food processor, process meat to a paste. Mix
   in eggs, cheese, and parsley; cool.
   
   Tomato Sauce:  Heat Oil in skillet or large saucepan over medium heat.
   Saute onion and garlic until onion is translucent.  Stir in tomato puree
   and remaining sauce ingredients.  Simmer, uncovered, for 15 minutes. Cover;
   keep warm until ready to use.
   
   Ravioli:  On floured surface, roll half of dough into a 12-by-16 inch
   rectangle; set aside on a towel.  Roll other half; score into 12 (4- inch)
   squares.  Mound filling in center of squares.  Brush water on scored lines;
   lay other rectangle of pasta on top.  Press, with fingers, around filling
   to seal.  Use pastry wheel or knife to cut between the mounds. In a large
   saucepan, bring 2 quarts water and 1 tablespoon oil to a boil. Add ravioli;
   cook gently for 5 to 7 minutes, or until edges are tender. Remove with
   slotted utensil (spoon or spatula).  Serve with tomato sauce and cheese.
   
   Makes 4 servings.
