- Fold the dough over the filling and cut around it with a ravioli cutter or a form that you may have.
- Put any excess dough with the rest of the dough and continue the process until you have no more dough.
- The finished Ravioli can be cooked in broth or can be served with Ragu sauce or any other sauce that you prefer.
