This dish is typical of the province of Teramo and traditionally served during Carnival week


Pour the flour and give it a fountain shape, break 4 eggs into it and knead until the dough becomes smooth,  then roll it out. Previously mix into a bowl the sugar together with the ricotta, the cinnamon, the lemon peel and two yolks. Put small heaps of stuffing at equal distance from one another on a stripe of dough. Cover the stripe with another. Cut around the stuffing to form a crescent then press down the sides of the ravioli together with a fork to keep them from opening while cooking in water. Once cooked dress with tomato sauce or with sugar and cinnamon.
