Today, ravioli is a food enjoyed well beyond the borders of its Italian homeland. The popularity of this stuffed pasta creation can be attributed in large part to its limitless diversity. In Italy alone, traditional preparations include…
– Vegetarian ravioli. For Friday meals, especially during Lent, many Catholic Italians do not eat meat, and so frequently prepare ravioli with vegetables, eggs, and cheese instead.
– Seafood-stuffed ravioli. In Italy’s coastal cities, pasta stuffed with seafood is common. The accompanying sauces are typically light and lemon-based.
– Sauce-baked ravioli. While many Italians boil ravioli in broth and then serve it, others follow the boiling step by baking the pasta in a rich sauce.
What contemporary Americans might think of as “standard” ravioli—that is, pasta stuffed with meat and served with tomato sauce—is also common in Italy, although it did not become so until tomato plants were introduced to the country in the 1700s.
