Ravioli fondue is a type of pasta dish that typically consists of small, stuffed pasta squares filled with a creamy cheese mixture and served in a rich and decadent cheese fondue sauce. The pasta is typically boiled until it is tender and then served hot and bubbling in the fondue sauce.
The filling inside ravioli fondue is usually made from a mixture of soft cheeses such as ricotta, mascarpone, or goat cheese, along with Parmesan cheese and sometimes herbs or spices such as garlic or nutmeg. The filling is then placed in small squares of pasta dough, which are folded over and sealed to create the characteristic ravioli shape.
The cheese fondue sauce for ravioli fondue is typically made from a combination of melted cheeses, such as Gruyere, Emmental, or Fontina, mixed with white wine, garlic, and sometimes kirsch or other flavorings. The cheese mixture is heated in a fondue pot and kept warm and bubbling, allowing diners to dip the ravioli into the sauce and enjoy the rich and creamy flavor.
When served, ravioli fondue is often accompanied by crusty bread or other dipping items, such as vegetables or fruit, to complement the cheese sauce. It is a popular dish in Swiss cuisine and is often enjoyed as a festive or special occasion meal.
