Raviolone with dark yellow: the recipe for a starter with ricotta and spinach

He dark yellow ravioli it’s a first course original and hearty chefs concocted for us by Chef Michele Ghedini; it is a ravioli enriched with a stuffed with ricotta and spinach and with the addition of creamy egg yolk. During cooking, the yolk does not cook completely, remaining, in fact, fondant: when you cut the ravioli with a fork, the yolk will come out, giving the dish creaminess and flavor. As it is a hearty dish, all you have to do is serve only one ravioli per dinner. In our recipe, we have created a simple and tasty condiment with hazelnut butter and parmesan to which you can add a pinch of ground pepper.

Here are the steps to make it happen and surprise parents and friends.
