I'm hoping to make ravioli later this week for supper. The problem is I'm a little stumped at what filling to make. Is there anything anyone would recommend?
Butternut squash. This is a delicious, very rich butternut squash lasagne:
The filling part would be perfect for ravioli. It's *very* rich. The squash is strongly flavored enough to substitute "light" versions of some other ingredients, if you want to lighten it a bit.
We like 3 cheese ravioli (ricotta, mozzarella and parmigiano reggiano cheese)
Spinach and bacon filling
Spinach with the 3 cheese listed above (sometimes with pesto or garlic butter)
Shrimp ravioli with a vodka sauce or a basil cream sauce
i just made mushroom ravioli last week - sauteed up some shallots, assorted mushrooms, deglazed with a little white wine, thickened with some cream, seasoned, and stuffed my ravioli - served it all in a duck bolognaise -
There are many dozens of choices, it all depends on what you want the final dish, with the appropriate sauce, to be. If you want complicated, consider a Parmgiano and
Ricotta filling with a raw egg nestled into the cheese mixture then poached and served with a brown butter sauce.
