Ravioli is a popular form of pasta, comprising rectangular or circular pieces of pasta filled with a wide range of delicious and fresh ingredients.

The fillings for ravioli can be either meat, fish-based or vegetable such as spinach or nettles, often combined with a soft, creamy cheese called ricotta.
