By: Anthony DeFelice

Capturing the essence of Italy, d.vino’s Executive Chef Martin Garcia has created seven unique interpretations of ravioli using seasonal, farm-fresh ingredients to welcome the return of the popular third annual Festival of Ravioli, going on now through Oct. 28. Since opening, the restaurant has hand rolled more than 320,000 raviolis in the old world artisan tradition. The menu includes crab ravioli, corn agnolotti, short rib ravioli, four cheese ravioli, chicken ravioli, pear ravioli, and our personal favorite, chocolate ravioli! Chef Garcia has shared his recipe so you can make and enjoy at home!

Chocolate Ravioli (3)Spread the pasta out in a flat sheet, and use a cookie cutter to mark each ravioli. Add a tablespoon of the filling in each mark and lay another sheet on top.
Pinch around each filling to seal it in between the pasta, then use the cookie cutter to cut each ravioli out.

Cook the ravioli in boiling water for about 5 minutes. Add 2 oz raspberry sauce in a cold saute pan, then add the ravioli and mix with the sauce. Plate five raviolis and add 1 oz. Kahula creme anglaise on top of each. Add chopped strawberries, candied walnuts and mint leaves.
