A favorite in northern Italy, ravioli as we know it was first served to the royal courts of Milan and Mantova in the 15th or 16th centuries. It was stuffed with cheese and greens like turnip tops and spinach or chopped meat. It quickly became a favorite among all the classes as a way to use leftover meat and bits of vegetables that would otherwise not be enough to make a hearty meal. Today, ravioli can be found served in brodo, tossed with a classic pomodoro sauce, or simply coated in butter or olive oil to let the flavorful filling shine through.
