Sausage & Broccoli Rabe Ravioli
Indulge in the heart of Italy with our fresh egg pasta, meticulously folded and generously filled with authentic Italian sausage and the slightly bitter allure of Broccoli Rabe. Complemented by the creaminess of Ricotta, Provolone, and Mozzarella, this ravioli is then sautéed to perfection in a flavorful symphony of garlic, parsley, and chili flakes, all brought together by the golden embrace of extra virgin olive oil. Enhance your dining experience with a recommended La Spinetta Langhe Nebbiolo 2021 glass. This wine boasts a bright ruby red hue from the renowned region of Langhe, Piedmont, Italy. As you take a moment to inhale, be enveloped by its aromatic romance of wild strawberries, cloves, and whispers of dark chocolate. The wine’s elegance on the palate shines with floral and fruitful notes, caressed by smooth and velvety tannins combined with bold acidity; these elements culminate in a complex and memorable finish, making it a harmonious pairing for our ravioli.

This oceanic delight is elegantly presented over linguine pasta, which has been sautéed with the famed San Marzano tomatoes, lending a sweet yet tangy depth. Kalamata olives and capers introduce a salty kick, all tied together by olive oil’s fruity richness, white wine’s lightness, and chili flakes’ subtle heat.
