Ravioli - a pillow shaped pasta, popular in several Italian regions - is usually made with a stuffing of spinach and cheese. Alfredo's was a popular restaurant in Rome, where the chef's fresh pasta was served with a cheese and cream sauce. This sauce from Alfredo's served over pasta has become known as Alfredo sauce. This recipe of ravioli uses refreshing green garlic and basil flavoured pasta dough filled with tomatoes, tossed with Alfredo sauce. You can also serve this ravioli tossed in butter and topped with parmesan cheese. To prevent ravioli from losing its shape and filling, do not overcook it. Drain the tomatoes completely before stuffing them to prevent the ravioli from getting soggy.
