You can see in the pictures below how Rani and her friends made their ravioli.


Rani used a fork to crimp the ravioli edges to seal the stuffing. While her friends just crimped the edges with their fingers.


Though Rani and her friends made ravioli in this way, feel free to play around with bigger ravioli pasta pillows and other fun stuffed pasta shapes.


Once ravioli is ready, cook in boiling water with salt and 1 tbsp olive oil for 5-7 minutes. Serve with pasta sauce of your choice.  Ravioli with caramelized shallots, spinach and ricotta is ready 😋.
