A delicious pasta from Basilicata/Calabria, which is in southern Italy.
Roll, fill, and cut the ravioli as directed on, using a heaping tablespoon of filling for each piece.
Heat a large pot of salted water to boiling and, at the same time, heat the tomato sauce. Drop the ravioli into the boiling water and simmer about 5 minutes. Remove them with a slotted spoon or large skimmer. Shake off the excess water and place on serving plates. Drizzle with the tomato sauce and sprinkle with the remaining pecorino. Garnish with the basil chiffonade. Serve hot.
