Ravioli is a type of pasta comprising a filling enveloped in thin pasta dough. Usually, this filling is made of ingredients like cheese, meats, vegetables, or even seafood, depending on the recipe or regional variations. The pasta is typically square, though it can be found in other shapes such as rounds or half-moons (when referred to as “mezzaluna”).

After being filled, the edges of the pasta dough are sealed to enclose the filling. Ravioli can be served in a broth, with a sauce, or simply with melted butter and cheese. This dish is a part of traditional Italian cuisine but has been adopted and adapted in many cultures around the world.
