Earlier this year my daughter tried some ravioli at school and has been begging for me to make it ever since. I have never made ravioli so a quick google search was in order. This ravioli recipe was the first recipe that I came across that hit the spot so this was used as a rough guide to convert to the Thermomix. The whole family loved this dish…I hope you enjoy it too!
