If you’re looking to indulge on a fanciful pasta dish, take a chance on our ravioli recipe! We use a cheesy ravioli to compliment well with the prosciutto. Our secret (or not-so secret) ingredient is the burst of flavor that comes from the herbes de provence. It is a blend of marjoram, oregano, rosemary, thyme, savory, and sometimes, lavender. Not to be mistaken from the usual Italian seasoning, though they have their similarities. Mix that in with some cheesy ravioli and salty meat, and you’ve got an inviting meal for dinner.
The best thing about our recipe is that it’s so easy to make! It’s different from a normal alfredo pasta, as ours come with the herbes de provence to add a new layer to it. It’s also effortless to customize, especially for the ravioli you intend to use. If you also have a ton of spices on hand, you don’t even need to run to the grocery to get a herbes de provence shaker. You can create the mix yourself, and add a touch more to your liking. Plus, the whole cooking process takes only 10 minutes. A great ravioli recipe to cook when you don’t have time after a long day’s work!
