It’s nice to make homemade ravioli for supper. I typically make a quick ribbon of homemade pasta, and then turn those beautiful ribbons of pasta into delicious homemade ravioli for supper.
Making the Ravioli Filling
First I cooked & crumbled some ground meat. I added chopped onions and Italian seasoning to the meat as it was browning. Then I drained the meat & set it aside.
In another bowl I prepared the filling by stirring together an egg, a slice of bread chopped into soft bread crumbs, two tablespoons dry red wine, one minced clove of garlic, 1/4 teaspoon Italian seasoning and salt & pepper. Then I added the cooked beef and mixed it well.
Forming The Ravioli
I rolled out my homemade pasta and placed it in my ravioli form. Then I placed a portion of the filling mixture into each ravioli well and topped with a second ribbon of pasta. With a pasta roller I scored the pasta and removed each ravioli from the form.
You don’t need a special form to make the pasta though. You can place 1 ribbon of pasta on your counter and place 1 tablespoon of filling mixture on the ribbon every 2 inches, beginning 1 inch from the end of one of the pieces.
Take the second ribbon of pasta and place it over the top of the filling. Press the pasta together between the meat squares. Use a sharp knife to cut between the ravioli and press the edges down firmly again to seal.
Meanwhile in a large saucepan bring 3 quarts of water and 1 tablespoon of salt to boiling. Add the ravioli and boil to al dente, about 8 minutes.
Remove cooked ravioli with slotted spoon into greased casserole dish, keeping warm while cooking remaining ravioli. Spoon pasta sauce over hot cooked ravioli and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
Serve immediately. Bon Appetit!

This is on my to do list! I have always want dot make my own ravioli. I didn’t forms existed – that would be handy! Thanks so much for sharing this recipe at the Family Joy linkup! Hope to see you again next Sunday!
There are fun attachments to add to your KitchenAid that make ravioli even easier, but they are expensive. You can use these inexpensive forms, or heck just roll the pasta dough flat, add scoops of filling, top with the second strip of pasta & press/cut with no form even needed. We love ravioli and it freezes beautifully too.
This looks so good and your directions make it sound easy enough. Hopefully I can pull it off! I’ll definitely be making this soon. Thanks for sharing! 🙂
Oh Yummy!! I love ravioli!! Thanks for sharing on My 2 Favorite Things on Thursday! Hope to see you again this week! Pinned!
Yummy Raviolis, thanks for sharing them at Dream Create and inspire.
I love ravioli. When you make some to freeze, do you doing anything to the ravioli before you put it in the freezer? Thank you.
Sue, I usually freeze the individual ravioli on a cookie sheet with nothing else on them. When they’re fully frozen I transfer them to freezer bags but this keeps them all separate when frozen so I can pull out as many or as few as I want. When I thaw them out & heat them up for another meal later, I usually put a dollop of marinara sauce & a sprinkling of Parmesan on them – they’re delicious!
Being a pasta lover, this looks and sounds delicious!
My family grew up eating “tutas” for special occasions. We were always told that was the Italian word for “chicken butts” because the shapes do indeed look like a chicken butt! Basically it is a ravioli shaped like a tortellini. Those shapes are so hard to perfect, so my amazing uncle uses the family recipe for the filling and makes them into ravioli shapes. My girls and I tried to make them, and it was a failure! Maybe we should try making them into raviolis!
This is definitely something I want to try, and soon!!! I’ve been following your blog for some time, but I saw this post from the In and Out of the Kitchen Link Party #52. I’m so glad that pasta is appreciated in this household because it’s so easy, and freezes. 🙂
Oh yes Amber, I always enjoy the ravioli on day 1 & freeze the rest. Sure makes for a quick, easy homemade meal later when you can pull it out of the freezer.
I’m so glad you posted this! I have one of those ravioli forms but I have never used it! Now I’m inspired to do so! Thanks for sharing! They look delicious! Blessings from Bama!
Ravioli has been on my to do list for so long!
This recipe looks great 🙂
Heather, my ravioli didn’t really take that long to make – pasta and all. And the beauty is that it made enough for me to freeze so we’ll be enjoying it again soon, but next time will just be thaw, heat, top with sauce & and sprinkle of cheese – EAT! LOL.
You should read my post on my experience with my ravioli form sometime…..Haha. I love homemade ravioli if I’m not the one making it, and I rarely ever hate making something. Now I need to go make my own again. *SIGH* Thank you for linking up with us for Fabulously Frugal Thursday.
Yum! Love it… Maybe I will try to make it soon!
Yum! I’ve always wanted to try making my own and you just might have inspired me to give it a try! Thanks for sharing. We got it pinned to check it out again later!

Excellent – give it a try Sue! ~TxH~
Wow, I’m impressed! Looks yummy! I so wish my hubby would eat more pasta but he just doesn’t care for it. (sigh)
That’s a shame Candy, RancherMan & I love this ravioli, and it freezes beautifully for future meals as well. ~TxH~
