You might have to wait for the definitive answer from one of the Italian members or URmaniac, who lives there - but I think it means 'stuffed' or 'filled' with.... As in ravioli etc

According to my Italian dictionary ... Ripieno can either mean "stuffed" or it can be a "filling" - as in ripierno per dolci (pie filling).

Maybe one of our Italian members will see this and can explain more ...

Ripieni does refer to an item which is stuffed. But it's used for foods such as stuffed calamari, chicken, pork, etc. rather than the filling that is used for pastas such as ravioli, tortellini, etc.

Yup...ripieni means stuffed or filled as the above posters have mentioned.
'Pieno' means 'full' in Italian. Sono sempre pieno ( purtroppo)...lolol
So, the filling = il ripieno

Si, si and si, everyone is correct. "Ripieni" means stuffed.

Lynan, mica male il tuo italiano!! But if I remember correctly you are female, then it should be "sono sempre pienA"...

Okay okay kick my smartybuns
