Ravioli is an Italian delicacy, which takes a bit of time and effort to prepare but is completely worth every second you spend!
The Ravioli is prepared by cooking dough stuffed with a cheesy spinach and corn mixture. The stuffing includes ingredients like garlic, green chillies and onions to boost the flavour and mouth-feel. The resulting Ravioli is a dainty, succulent and tasty pasta-like ingredient, which is topped with luscious Pink Sauce and baked.
The Pink Sauce is a pretty sight, but more than that it is totally burgeoning with flavours. The mellow creaminess of white sauce, the tang of tomatoes and the zesty seasonings give it an awesome flavour and mouth-feel, which are accentuated upon baking.
Enjoy the Ravioli immediately upon preparation, before the cheese gets thick. You are sure to love the effect of your effort!
