Quick Recipes & Easy Recipe Ideas - Tablespoon Cook the Book: Fresh Ricotta and Egg Ravioli with Brown Butter [Photograph: Sara Remington] "Putting an egg on it" has become up there with adding bacon when it comes to increasing the tasty factor. And while we've seen plenty of over easy topped burgers and pulled pork sandwiches, this trend isn't too rampant in the world of pasta aside from wonderfully yolk-y carbonara. These are the ravioli that runny yolk lovers dream of: oversized packets of fresh pasta dough filled with creamy, nutmeg-spiked ricotta with a single egg yolk nestled within. Like all handmade pastas, these egg little wonders are a special occasion fare. As always with our Cook the Book feature, we have five (5) copies of The Mozza Cookbook to give away this week.
