    ksenko's Note:

    My grandmother-in-law's recipe. It is requested by nearly everyone who tastes it. Recently the club we belong to added it to their permanent menu. Nonna made her own pasta dough - but I use won ton wrappers. It is the filling that makes these!

    1. 1
      Heat 1 Tbs. oil in large skillet, add meat and brown well.
    2. 2
      Drain fat from meat and add salt, pepper, garlic powder and nutmeg. Set aside.
    3. 3
      Drain thawed spinach, squeezing to eliminate excess water.
    4. 4
      Saute spinach with 3 Tbs. oil sprinkled with garlic powder.
    5. 5
      Add spinach to meat and stir well. Continue sauteing for 5-10 minutes.
    6. 6
      Cool, then add egg and Paresan cheese mixing well.
    7. 7
      Place 2 teaspoons filling into center of won ton wrapper. If using less filling - fold wrapper over and seal edges using a bit of water. If using more filling- place a second wrapper over filling and seal using a bit of water.
    8. 8
      Note: Nonna made the filling and then placed several slices of bread into a bowl. Then put the filling on top of the bread. She let that sit in the refrigerator to absorb any excess fat drippings. Then she would place filling into pasta.
    9. 9
      Place pasta in boiling water until float to top. Ravioli may be frozen.

      Delicious and easy! Everyone was asking for the recipe. I used ground turkey and fresh baby spinach sauteed with garlic. Served it with some marinara on the side. Thank you.

      Nonna Marfisa was my great-grandmother. I have searched high and low for ravioli this good. No one seems to combine meat and spinach as a filling anywhere else. This is easy and delicious and it freezes well, in case you don't eat all that you make...doubtful!
