Ravioli is one of the best-known stuffed pasta dishes, famous beyond the shores of Italy. It is said that ravioli originally came from Liguria and was invented to use up left-over food. This recipe of small square envelopes of pasta dough enclosing a mixed vegetable stuffing served with a tomato sauce, spiked with oregano and chilli is sure to tickle the Indian palate which craves for spice. You can divide the making of ravioli into easy stages that can be completed well in advance. Make the filling and the sauce one day, then make the pasta dough and shape the ravioli the next day. Remember to toss the ravioli in the sauce just before serving and then to eat it quickly!
