Eggs Undercover

A farm fresh egg yolk in a mound of three cheeses fill these ravioli, creating an Italian dish that's hard to surpass.  The recipe was inspired by Food and Wine Magazine.  Local eggs and cheeses paired with my own tomato sauce, followed by an Apple Crisp made with the first of the season West Virginia University apples, complete a dinner where I know where and who produced the ingredients.
