  • 400g spinach and ricotta ravioli

  • 1 pottle sour cream


  • 2 tablespoons toasted pumpkin seeds
  • 2 tablespoons chopped basil leaves

  2. Heat a drizzle of oil in a large fry-pan on medium-high heat. Cook onion for 1–2 minutes, until starting to soften and lightly colour. Add courgette and broccolini and cook a further 2 minutes, until starting to soften.
  3. Add tomato Neapolitan sauce and season to taste with salt and pepper. Bring to a simmer and cook for about 3 minutes, until thickened slightly.
