Cheese and Herb Ravioli Filling

"These ingredients will keep very well for a week or so, and is a great way to, as I say, plan a hurry-up-dinner. You can alternate the cheeses and by doing so,perhaps find new things that you like.Source: Food Network The amounts vary, depending how large or small you make your ravioli. I make fried ravioli and when I use this recipe, I get, maybe 8-10. If anyone makes this, please let me know how many you get."

  1. This was so delicious! I got nervous because I cheated and tasted it before it was cooked and it wasn't too exciting, but it ended up SO good! This in the handmade pasta that I tried out for the first time and its my new favorite food. I used a little more than half of the filling and got about 35 small raviolis. Thank you for sharing, it made for a wonderful family dinner!
  2. Very tasty. I loved the flavor of the goat cheese in this. I used it to stuff raviolis made with carrot pasta. ( Recipe #378502 ) I got about 24 raviolis. I liked the goat cheese idea so much, I think next time I make lasagna, I will add it to the ricotta layer. Thanks for a new take on an old standby!


I would like to welcome you to my recipes. I have been with since 10/05. My beloved husband, Tom, passed away 3 years ago. My world stopped. It's taken me all this time to find my way back to life without him. I have been so blessed to have found my second, once in a lifetime. I've met an amazing man who is so good to me. We moved from Las Vegas, Nevada to Bullhead City, Az. in February, and we love it here. I have worked at Bally's and Paris hotel.casinos, in Las Vegas. I have seen some very famous entertainers, including Liza Minnelli, Penn and Teller, Ray Liotta, Dr. J (Julius Erving), Frank Sinatra and his wife Barbara Marx. and many, many more. Cooking is my passion, and I am slowly, but surely beginning to venture into the world of baking. To me, cooking is so much easier because baking is so much more exact. I love to make Italian and Mexican food the best, followed by Chinese and last, but by far the least, good old American food! How can you beat chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes and gravy?? I love to find several recipes and put my own spin on them and create a new recipe.
