Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.
  2. Add about 1/4 cup olive oil to the water to help prevent pasta from sticking.
  3. Add the ravioli and cook until al dente, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes.
  4. Drain the ravioli, reserving 1/2 cup of the cooking water.
  5. Toss the ravioli with the remaining oil to coat.
  6. Meanwhile, bring the marinara sauce to a simmer in a medium saucepan over medium heat, whisking often.
  7. Whisk in the ricotta and enough reserved cooking water to thin the sauce to desired consistency.
  8. For a thicker sauce, use less pasta water; for a thinner sauce, add more water.
  9. Return the sauce to a simmer and season the sauce to taste with salt and pepper.
  10. Spoon 3 tablespoons of sauce over the bottom of each of 6 bowls. Arrange the ravioli over the sauce. Drizzle the remaining sauce over the ravioli. Sprinkle with the Parmesan and the basil, and serve.
