Ravioli di Ricotta

Ravioli di Ricotta

1 cup very fresh ricotta cheese
2 tablespoons of grated Parmigiano
2 eggs
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup melted butter
1 cup grated Parmigiano
Several leaves of sage (optional)

Begin by preparing your pasta (you can buy several sheets of
ready-made fresh pasta if you prefer)
Crumble the ricotta in a bowl with a fork, then add the Parmigiano
and the eggs and work the mixture till it?s a uniform paste. Taste
and correct seasoning, remembering that the filling should be mild.
Cover the filling and let it rest a half hour or more in a cool place.

Make your raviolis and cook the ravioli in boiling water, draining
them with a slotted spoon and transferring them to a bowl.
Meanwhile, melt the butter, flavoring it with the sage, if you are
using it. Stir the melted butter and the grated Parmigiano into
the ravioli and serve.

Serves four.
