Small oval or round pasta envelopes similar to ravioli, folded into a half moon shape and with a frilled edge. In Emilia-Romagna they usually have a rich meat stuffing, often made from a stew, well reduced and sieved. In Lombardy they are made with chicken, breadcrumbs, eggs, spices and grated cheese and served in chicken broth. In Piacenza the same pasta is called anvein.
