A long and laborious preparation, which still today represents a symbol of the identity of the Langhe, in the wake of a centuries-old history: ravioli al plin were created to preserve the filling of roasts inside a thin sheet of pasta, closed with a "plin" (literally "pinch") between two edges of dough.

The best meats are selected for the filling of this tasty first course (which in the Langhe combines pork, rabbit and veal), which according to an old and curious custom should be served "al tovagliolo", without any seasoning.

Among the possible sauces, they go very well with butter and sage or, alternatively, to enhance the flavour even more, with a light and delicate sauce that blends the strong flavour of the black olives with the bitter taste of the artichokes, in the aromatic embrace of marjoram.
