Oven-baked ravioli

No one can resist to ravioli; and while the classic recipe of a simple ricotta filling and tomato sauce is delicious, this creative concoction will take this dish to glorious new heights. So, try out our alternative recipe and get a step closer to Italy!

Ingredients for 4-6 servings  

-2 packages of halloumi- stuffed ravioli (2x400gr.)

-1 cup grated cheese + 2 slices of edam/ cheddar/gouda cheese
-5-6 ham slices
-1 tin of sliced mushrooms

-fresh cream (250ml)

-1 vegetable broth



– Fill a pan with water and bring it to a boil over high heat. Once it’s at a full, rolling boil, put salt and ravioli and cook for 10-12 minutes. Leave for 2-3 minutes and drain, while keeping only 1/3 of the cup of broth.

-Preheat the oven at 180°C. At the same time, cut the cheese and ham slices into very small pieces.

-Wash the mushrooms and drain.

-Put ravioli into an ovenproof pan and add cheese, ham, mushrooms and then stir. Dissolve fresh cream in the 1/3 of the cup of broth you’ve kept before. Then, spread to ravioli.

-Scatter over a couple of handfuls of grated cheese, cover the pan with aluminium foil and bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes.

-Remove the foil and keep baking for another 10-15 minutes until golden brown.
