Ravioli with ricotta onion
Ravioli di ricotta e cipolle
Ravioli with ricotta onion is one of the most magnificent and memorable pasta dishes I know. A combination made in heaven.
Ravioli with ricotta onion does not sound particularly appealing, but it tastes phenomenal. Especially if you make a perfectly balanced, sweet and sour marmalade of Tropea onion to mix with the dairy creaminess of the cheese.
I first encountered the dish at a reasonably high profiled restaurant in Copenhagen, where ravioli with ricotta onion was served with fried sausage meat, brown nut flavoured butter and flakes of parmesan. It was divine. Afterwards, I’ve found a few similar recipes on Italian web pages, but nothing to match this version – even without the sausage meat.
It’s easy to make ravioli with ricotta onion, if you have already got a jar of Tropea onion marmalade. Otherwise you’ll have to prepare the the dish from scratch.
