MAKING
1) On a work surface, add the the flour, salt and sugar together, then make a depression in the center.
2) Add the egg and wine, and mix the ingredients with a fork to form a rough dough. Then knead, adding more flour or wine to make a pliable and slightly dry dough.
3) Knead the dough for at least 6 minutes, or until smooth and elastic. Then cover with a damp cloth or plastic wrap and allow to stand for 30 minutes.
4) Divide the dough into 3 pieces, roll each piece into a very thin sheet, then cover and allow to rest for 15 minutes.
5) In a bowl, combine all the filling ingredients together, mix thoroughly.
6) Cut out the pasta circles 4 to 5 inches in diameter, brush the rim of each circle with egg, then spoon 2 teaspoon filling in the center.
7) Fold over the circle to form a cresent shape and press the edges together. Cut around the rims with a zigzag pastry wheel or a crimper cutter and keep aside in a single layer.
8) In a frying pan, heat vegetable oil and fry 2 to 3 pastries at a time, until evenly golden and crisp . Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.

SERVING
9) Serve the Ricotta and Salami in Wine Pasta, immediately on individual serving plates.
