15 Ravioli Recipes To Update Your Pasta Dinner

by Rebecca Deczynski

If there’s anything you can take away from Aziz Ansari in Master of None, it’s that making your own pasta from scratch can be a therapeutic and even life-changing experience. There is really no reason why you shouldn’t try it out yourself — so why not start off with these homemade ravioli recipes? It’s a culinary challenge, but not one that beginners can’t attempt, so give it a go and you may just end up with something great.

Although everyone has their own fair share of incredible pasta recipes, sometimes ravioli gets left to the side when really, it deserves its glory. What could possibly be better than pasta filled with cheese or vegetables or anything else you could imagine? Top it off with plenty of sauce (and more cheese), or bake it to perfection, and you’ve got one comforting dinner. If you’re going to make homemade pasta, you should seriously consider trying out these pasta pillows.

Whether you’re craving something a little more creative (like a pierogi/ravioli hybrid) or you’re looking for ways to amp up your frozen ravioli, these 15 recipes will not let you down. Serve them while they’re hot, and take pride in your newfound pasta-making skills.
