Uova di Raviolo simply means ‘egg in ravioli’ in Italian. These are quite big, so serve them one apiece as an appetizer or two apiece as an entrée. By dressing each one up with sriracha, red chile flakes, and shaved parmesan, the yolk gets to be the star of the show. However, these would be amazing served with a lemony pancetta sauce or even hollandaise (avocado benedict uova di raviolo anyone?).
