There are many different kinds of freshly made ravioli available, and this is a great way to present any of them. I prefer this approach over a tomato sauce, because a reduced broth doesn?t have a strong flavor that competes with the ravioli filling. This is an easy way to put together an elegant meal.

1 quart low sodium chicken stock
1 Freshly ground pepper to taste
