We at Delitaly’s love Ravioli and it is now a firm staple in our grab and go range. Keeping to tradition our ravioli is made out of egg pasta dough that’s typically stuffed with various fillings and combinations of ricotta, meat, cheese, and vegetables and then served in a light delicious tomato or cream-based pasta sauce. To the bite it has a luxurious pillowy texture and the full envelope filling will make you just want to come back for more. Try making ravioli from scratch with your own choice of fillings. It isn’t difficult to make but it does require some practice, so here are some secret tips to help you make ravishing ravioli like we do!
There is no one true Italian lasagne recipe, so be bold and make your own, combining different sauces, meats, vegetables and cheeses to create your own special one.
Because the dough is so thin, ravioli takes only 1-2 minutes to cook in boiling salted water. If you cook them for too long, they may start to leak and the pasta will become too soft. So drain carefully and use a strainer.
As ravioli is all about the stuffing, it is important to dress them with a sauce that does not distract from that. Classic examples are butter and sage, some gravy from braising the meat that was used in the stuffing, or a simple pink sauce of cream and tomatoes.
Serving a small portion of about 6 ravioli makes them more special. Rather than consuming large quantities a smaller portion invites you to enjoy them slowly, savoring the wonderful flavor and texture.
