These ravioloni with ricotta, spinach, sage butter and egg yolk are a total delight

This is a dish I had heard about and have been wanting to try for some time. The flavours of the fresh pasta mixed with ricotta, spinach and sage butter are very traditional and delicious.The surprise when you cut the raviolone and the golden liquid egg yolk spills out is both a delight to the eye and a boost to the taste buds. The trick to this dish is to perfectly cook the pasta while keeping the egg runny, so the pasta does need to be thin. It is perfect to serve as an appetiser.
