Plin are the typical fresh stuffed pasta of Piedmont. Particularly popular in the Langhe and Monferrato area, they are a kind of ravioli, seasoned with braised meat, such as the leftovers of Brasato al Barolo.

What distinguishes them from other stuffed pastas are their small size and characteristic shape. Their name derives from this: in order to make them, the Agnolotto is given a pizzicotto, Plin in Piedmontese dialect. This is the origin of the characteristic ravioli.
