These ravioli are a typical dish of Capri. Prepared by hand, filled with various types of cheese and served with a tomato sauce, they are a perfect first course for both adults and children alike.
Ravioli Capresi can also be served with butter and sage or fried to be offered as an appetizer.

Ingredients for 4 people
For the pasta:
500 gr. flour
2 table spoons of olive oil
Half litre of boiling water

For the filling:
300 gr. Caciotta di Sorrento cheese (grated)
2 eggs
200 gr. grated Parmesan cheese

For the sauce:
Fresh tomato sauce
Grated Parmesan cheese
Fresh basil

In a mixing basin add the flour, oil, boiling water and mix to a firm consistency.
In another bowl beat the eggs and, stirring well, add the Parmesan and Ciaciotta cheese, and the marjoram.

With a rolling pin, roll out the mixture, adding a little flour, until a thin sheet has been obtained.

With the aid of a teaspoon, place balls of the filling at equal distances on half of the sheet.

Fold the other half of the sheet so as to cover the balls.
Separate the ravioli in to round froms using a glass of approximately 4-5 cm diameter.

Cook in boiling water for five minutes, serve with the tomato sauce, parmesan cheese and fresh basil leaves.
