Taleggio-filled Mezzalune Ravioli

mezzalune ravioli

“Taleggio is Italy’s answer to French brie,” said Tony when we tasted these Mezzalune (half moon) ravioli stuffed with the famous cheese from Lombardy, Italy, and then topped with Genovese pesto and pine nuts.

Like brie, Taleggio is a “washed rind” soft, cow’s milk cheese.

During production, “washed-rind” cheeses are repeatedly wiped or brushed with a brine.

Hence the name and the soft “crust” to the cheese.
