For the crust: Knead the flour, eggs, salt and oil making a smooth and consistent dough. If necessary add a spoon of water to the dough.

For the stuff: Put the egg, the cottage cheese, the cheddar, the parmesan, pepper, salt in a bowl and mix everything until you obtain a homogenous compound.

For the sauce: Dissolve the butter in a pot. Add saffron with some milk and a pince of salt.

Assembly: put the stuff in a sac à poche and put it on each crust. Go on covering one half of the crust. Cover the stuff with the rest of the crust. To better close ravioli you can use some water. Cut ravioli using a stamp of 5 cm of diameter. Boil some salted water in a pot, adding a spoon of oil. Proceed with the cooking for about 3-4 minutes, until ravioli come out. When they are ready, drain them and put them on a plate with butter and saffron. Put some pepper and serve them hot.
