Fresh Ravioli Sheets?

Where can I buy fresh ravioli sheets in LA? I don't feel like rolling out my own dough have some amazing lobster ready to be stuffed! Whole Foods and Cube only has fresh lasagna sheets which are too thick. Thanks!

    I'm not in LA adn don't have an answer for you, but perhaps my question might open a possibility for you...Is it possible to roll out commercially made pasta sheets to be thinner using a hand crank machine? Or, are they too "set", having been manufactured much earlier? Thanks and hope an answer comes soon to help both of us!

      I made ravioli using the WF lasagna sheets & they were a disaster. I'm not sure if you could roll them thinner without tearing as they are not very supple. I have had luck with wonton wrappers or egg roll skins when making ravioli.

        I used the WF lasagna sheets and they worked out fine. A little hard to work with but not a disaster (see attached). You could maybe try Surfas?

        Cube Marketplace on La Brea carries fresh lasagna sheets that look viable.

        You can take a look at them via their shop/restaurant web site (they do online orders, too).

          I'm just throwing suggestions, but for this type of thing maybe you could give a call to Guidi Marcello or Claro's?
