Handcrafted tools like this have been used by Italian nonnas for centuries to make the loving labor of making fresh pasta for the family simpler and more enjoyable. A favorite in northern Italy, ravioli as we know it was first served to the royal courts of Milan and Mantova toward the end of the Middle Ages, usually stuffed with cheese and greens such as 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 and cheese to let the flavorful filling shine through.
