Ravioli with mushroom sauce are a very rich first course, perfect for Sunday lunches or special dinners with guests. They are very tasty, creamy, and really irresistible.
Ravioli with Mushroom Sauce is ideal for the autumn season, in which mushrooms are the masters; they are ideal, accompanied by a good glass of red wine like a nice Barbaresco.
Despite the long preparation, this recipe is perfect for those who do not want to stay at the stove until a few minutes before lunch or dinner. Once placed on the baking tray, the ravioli with mushroom sauce must be cooked for a few more minutes in the oven. They can therefore be prepared in advance and baked at the moment.
