Y'all... Don't be mad that this requires you to make your own ravioli.  
It is a bit of work, but the end results will make your mouth the happiest mouth on the planet. 


Making pasta just really floats my boat.  The soft texture of it makes me so happy, and it will make you happy, too.  
The sauce is amazing and full of flavor. It's creamy, but the lemon helps give it this feeling of not being so heavy.
