Ricotta ravioli with tomato and Basil: a traditional dish, one of the symbols of Italian cuisine. Easy to make and even easier to eat. As I have already mentioned how much I like the word ' stuffing '. And what's better than a dumpling, or egg noodles (and I adore make it at home in a very thin sheet) stuffed with something soft, Saber, scented? Hence these ravioli with a filling easy: sheep's milk ricotta, Parmesan cheese, Salt, eggs, a pinch of nutmeg. All seasoned with a humble tomato sauce and Basil: humble Yes, but with all the scents of the Mediterranean. If you like ravioli also try those stuffed with burrata cheese with artichoke cream and hazelnuts or those of ricotta with lemon and Mint-scented black mulberries.

Avvolgerlo nella pellicola per alimenti e lasciarlo riposare per almeno un'ora a temperatura ambiente.

Put a teaspoon of cottage cheese filling in the center of each disk of dough and brush the outer edge of the ravioli with a little albumen. Fold in half on himself the ravioli until it forms a Crescent, by pressing right on the edge: to seal the ravioli, pull the edge with the prongs of a fork, pressing well but being careful not to pierce the dough. Put the ravioli so get over a table well floured.
