My partner (who professes to be vegetarian) wanted to make meat ravioli. I found this recipe here and we made it together. Once he cooked the beef and herbs, I ran the mixture through the meat grinder attachment of our KitchenAid mixer using the fine-grind metal plate. We then added the cheeses to the ground mixture - what a wonderful consistency this gave it! We also did homemade pasta and sauce with Roma tomatoes from our garden...the combination of ingredients produced a meal that was out of this world! Thanks to Ruth for this easy-to-make and absolutely delicious recipe. This is one of those recipes that you can proudly serve to company.

These were great. I got about 70 good sized ravioli's out of this batch. Definitely worth the work.

I have never made my own pasta before but received a pasta maker for Christmas. I've been staring at it for 2 months now and finally took the plunge. What a great filling! It was easy to put together and I especially appreciated that it had some texture as I find the commercial raviolis sort of pasty. This would be awesome in stuffed shells as well. Thanks so much for sharing!

I made half a recipe and it is great. Will make this again soon. I still have some dough left to use.

Gee, I'm singing praises over in the Italian forum about how fantastic the meat filling is and realized I hadn't even rated this!! I have used this meat filling in ravioli, manicotti shells, spaghetti sauce and still am raving about the flavor!!

onion powder, garlic powder, dried basil (yuk) - doesn't anyone cook anymore? What is wrong with onion and garlic? and dried basil has no discernible relation with fresh. You might as well put in straw.

This was really good. Great flavor!! After I browned the meat, I ground it in my Cuisinart. Next time, I will toss the cheese in there too. It gave it a great texture. We'll be using this filling often. Thanks!!

This is a great tasting filling and very easy to make. The smell of all the herbs and spices is outstanding! We used wonton wrappers and made raviolis and then froze them. To prepare, we boiled them and then used an excellent jarred sauce, covered with cheese and it was wonderful!
