Ravioli al taleggio e asparagi

Ravioli al taleggio e asparagiKnowing that I had a dinner to prepare for some very picky foodies, I really had to come up with something impressive and difficult enough to make while being light, fresh and tasty to satisfy and exited their tongue buds. The result is this fantastic Ravioli al taleggio e asparagi.

Nothing really beats fresh pasta when it comes to taste, texture, and lightness. Fresh pasta is a world apart from those being sold at various supermarket. They are not to difficult to make if you have time and the tools.

The combination the taleggio and the asparagus works so well. On one hand we have a  creamy and soft cheese with enough character to be used as it is on a cheese plater and even works even better in any pasta or risotto dish. On the other hand, we have a very fresh and subtle vegetables that needs something not to overpowering to shine.

This recipe inspired by Guy Grossi‘s book Love Italy is perfect when you want to impress some guests coming over for dinner.
