1. Make the pasta dough. For the filling, heat a medium sized frying pan over moderate heat and add Lupi Olive oil. Saute the mushrooms and then add the onion and garlic. Saute until onion is cooked through and liquid has evaporated. Set aside to cool then add Perfect Italiano parmesan and reserve.

2. For the parsley oil, place parsley in a bowl, add the Lupi Olive oil and lemon juice. Mix well and season to taste.

3. Heat a small frying pan over high heat and fry the bacon until crisp. Set aside.

4. For the basil sauce, heat a medium sized frying pan over medium heat and add the onion and the garlic. Fry without colouring until translucent, then add the carrot and leek and cook until tender. Add the Campbells Real Stock Vegetable stock and three quarters of the basil. Turn down the heat and simmer until stock has reduced by three quarters. Transfer to a blender and blend with the Anchor cream and remaining basil. Season to taste and set aside.

5. Fill the ravioli with the mushroom filling and cook according to instructions on pasta recipe.

6. To serve, place two ravioli in the centre of each plate. Spoon a little of the basil sauce over each of the ravioli and sprinkle with bacon. Top with Perfect Italiano parmesan, a few parsley and basil leaves and finish with a drizzle of parsley oil around the plate.
