I have had a ravioli addiction ever since the fateful day I attended a ravioli making class at Giovanni Rana restaurant inside Manhattan's charming Chelsea Market. The restaurant is a culinary venture of Giovanni Rana pasta, which, in Europe, is a household name that every consumer knows about. I got to taste their butternut squash ravioli in the class - and they were heavenly. And luckily, they gave me a few bags to take home.

I recently made them again from their refrigerated pasta. They were a breeze to make, literally taking just 2-3 minutes to cook. I ate mine with extra fresh ricotta (duhh), a sprinkle of sea salt, and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil. After eating about 2 recommended servings, I still had some left over. Instead of heating them up and eating them as are, I decided to see if I can cook them in an omelet.

The result? Glorious. It’s probably my new favorite omelet and certainly the best one I’ve made to-date. It's also a nice way to switch up a sweet breakfast. Eggs are so nutritious and a great source of high-quality protein and vitamin D. So, if you like pasta and omelets, I urge you to give this a try. Trust me, you will impress your friends (and yourself) by making this easy peasy recipe that can be eaten for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
