Ricotta, Beef Filling

  • Place the ground beef, garlic into a skillet over medium heat.

  • Wet your index finger into a cup of water and spread a light layer of water along the entire edge of the disc. 
  • Fold it into a half-moon, closing slightly. 
  • Take the ravioli delicately with your hand and close the edges well.

  • Cook in plenty of boiled and salted water for about 6 minutes. 
  • Drain them well, and toss it with the sauce and a handful of Parmigiano cheese.
