Ravioli ingredients

I have the time to make homemade ravioli and I am going to make butternut squash ravioli (and serve with sage butter). I can come up with all sorts of yummy ideas (yes, I am the foodie), but my mom is likes just plain cheese. What are your favorite 'flavors' and also what might be some mellow alternatives for my mom? Thanks!

  1. spinach/ricotta/parmigiano-reggiano/egg/a tiny bit of nutmeg/S&P. Let the ricotta drain in a strainer for an hour or so, and grate the cheese as finely as you can.

      1. re: Terrie H.

        As long as the spinach and ricotta are as dry as they can be, so the pasta doesn't get wet before cooking, and I can eat this forever.

    1. pesto/ricotta is one of my favorites. I like it even better with a bit of chicken added.

      1. I often make a Spring Pea filling this time of year.
        Cooked Peas through the Food Mill. Flavorings and Parm added, Sometimes some Pancetta or Bacon as well.
