For the sauce combine tomatoes, garlic, onion, basil, sweet peppers and olive oil in a large shallow pan. Put over a medium heat and simmer for 1 ½ hours until rich in flavour. Season with salt and pepper if you wish. Blend till smooth in a food processor. Keep warm.
Bring a large pot of water to the boil and season with salt. Add the ravioli and cook per packet instructions, this is a fresh product and should cook to perfection in about 3 minutes.
If your pan of sauce is large enough you can cook the pasta in the sauce itself. To facilitate the attractive serving of this dish we will boil the pasta separately.
To plate, place 4 tablespoons of sauce in each of your pasta bowls, top with the ravioli and finish with a drizzle of olive oil, torn basil leaves and some ripped buffalo mozzarella for extra extravagance.
Serve with freshly grated Grana Padano cheese.
