Backed pasta

Backed ravioli used to be a favorite of mine back in Lausanne - almost no cooking involved and really yummy! you can even used frozen fresh pasta directly from the freezer.

Backed ravioli - serves 2
400g fresh pasta - ravioli, tortellini etc with your favorite filling
1dl cream
seasoning - I use salt and pepper, garlic powder, paprika and nutmeg powder
a small handful grated cheese
optional: some chopped vegetables, here I added one chopped tomato and a couple diced dried tomatoes, zucchini or fennel could also be nice
[1] Preheat the oven to 200 degrees celsius.
[2] Put the uncooked pasta in a oven-proof dish. Mix in the chopped vegetables, if you have any. Season to taste. Add the cheese on top on the pasta and pour the cream homogeneously over the whole dish, you want it to soak up the spicy flavour and distribute it.
[3] Bake in the oven for about 10minutes or until golden.
[4] Serve with a salad or green beans.
