Ravioli con crostacei
This recipe for crayfish ravioli was inspired by a sunny Sunday visit to the seafood restaurant Meetings in Porto Cesareo.
Sundays when the sun is out the Pugliesi flock to the seaside to picnic or take a stroll along the promenade. At one in the afternoon the streets are deserted, as everyone seeks the shade of a restaurant, where they enjoy a full Italian meal.
I still cannot muster appetite for 3-4 courses in the middle of the day, but an appetizer or a pasta dish also make a terrific meal. At Meetings in Porto Cesareo one of the pasta dishes were crayfish ravioli in a mild, creamy tomato sauce, and they were so delicious I had to try making them myself.
