A traditional treat from the mind-blowing cuisine of Italy, Ravioli is a type of dumpling made of plain flour dough, stuffed with cheesy mixtures, and cooked in boiling water. In this case, the Ravioli is stuffed with cheesy, garlic-flavoured spinach.
The cooked Ravioli is then topped with white sauce and cheese, seasoned with chilli flakes, and baked till the topping melts and coats the Ravioli. The outcome is too awesome to describe. Try the recipe, to experience the magic for yourself.
Ravioli can be a meal in itself, but if you wish, serve it with side dishes like Neapolitan Potato Salad and Tomato and Basil Bruschetta .
