Homemade Filled Pasta/Ravioli?

I bought myself a pasta maker a while back, and I've gotten decently good at cut fresh pasta, but I'm interested in moving on to filled pasta--ravioi in particular, but anything within the realm. In particular, I'm interested in pastas that are freezable and then quickly cooked (I'm a student--pre-cooked finals food is a good thing!)

I know that Alton Brown has a recipe, but what about the one that lidia bastianich made with Mo Rocca? Are there others that I should know about?

      Fillings I love and make regularly:

      home-made ricotta with spinach
      ricotta, romano and basil

      These all freeze well. Bring water to a boil and throw in the frozen ravioli. Dinner is ready in less than 4 minutes.

    2. I liked stuffed pastas with goat cheese and sundried tomatoes, mushrooms, or butternut squash. You can also make a simple stuffed pasta with cheese and toss it with vegetables like zucchini, red peppers, and eggplant with a little lemon juice.

        Ricotta with roasted walnuts & sage
        Boursin cheese mousse & chive
