Ravioli filled with cheese is a delicious vegetarian Italian dish. With cream, ricotta, and a salty Parmesan cheese as a filling. A flavorful recipe.
Although in some parts of the world pasta's are eaten as dinner, in Italy it's custom to make this dish as a starter. And this ravioli is indeed delicious as a starter, but I love to eat it as my main dish, with a green salad.
Because of the combination of the cheeses in this filling, the ravioli baked in butter and drizzled with a flavorful cheese sauce makes a great dish. It only needs some chopped parsley.
