Enjoy the classic combination of spinach and ricotta in this delicate ravioli, filled with three types of organic cheese and real cream. To really allow the pasta to shine, it’s best served with a light sauce or, in this case, a simple sauté of juicy tomato and leafy greens.

“Hold your block of Parmesan by the rind and use a vegetable peeler to shave the cheese into thin strips,” suggests Michelle Pennock, executive chef for the PC Test Kitchen.
