Chestnut and Artichoke Ravioli

This ravioli recipe is made with chestnut flour for gluten-free fresh pasta. However, it also a great recipe to try for a pasta dough with a slightly nutty flavour, and it is commonly used throughout Tuscany. When paired with an artichoke filling it creates a beautiful earthy pasta dish that is lifted by the fragrant sage butter.
