For the Pasta Dough

In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, mix all ingredients for 1 minute just to combine the ingredients. Switch out the paddle attachment for a dough hook and knead for 3 to 4 minutes at medium speed. Let the dough rest for at least 1 hour.

For the Fresh Goat Cheese Filling

In a bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, combine goat cheese, Parmesan, herbs, and lemon zest. Slowly mix all the ingredients until just combined. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer to a piping bag and chill until needed.

For the Beurre Monté

In a small, heavy saucepan over medium heat, bring 15 grams water to a simmer. Reduce the heat to low and gradually whisk in butter until the water and butter have emulsified. Keep the temperature of your butter sauce around 185°F. If the sauce boils, it will separate.

To Assemble and Serve

Divide the Pasta Dough into 2 equal parts then roll out each piece using a pasta machine. Every second roll, move the setting down a notch, dusting with flour as you go, until the sheet is nice and thin. Using a 4-inch ravioli cutter, stamp out 24 pasta disks. Place the disks on a flour-dusted surface and cover with cling film as you cut the rest. Cut the tip off the Fresh Goat Cheese Filling’s piping bag and place about 1½ tablespoons of filling in the center of 12 pasta disks. Dampen the edges then sandwich another disk on top and use your fingertips to seal the edges trying to expel all the air as you go. Lay the ravioli on a flour-dusted tray to dry for a few minutes. 
Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Once the water starts boiling, add salt and stir in the ravioli. Cook for about 4 minutes or until the ravioli float to the top. Drain well. Transfer the ravioli to a medium sauce pot or a sauté pan and add the Beurre Monté. Gently warm it up, spooning some of the Beurre Monté sauce over the ravioli. To finish, add in dill, lemon zest, and pine nuts. Season with salt and pepper. Spoon the ravioli to a serving plate with the Beurre Monté. Top with a sprinkle of chives then garnish with red mustard frills and Thai basil.
