You can either use cheese filling, or meat filling..

I'll give you a meat filling:

1 lb ground sirloin (or any type of beef)
4 garlic glooves
1 onion
salt/pepper
oil

Cook it on a pan, than just take a tbsp, tsp, etc, put on raviolli shell.

ricotta and spinach is one of the classic, and one of my favourites!! Ricotta can be also paired with (some grated parmigiano or grana padano for additional flavour) mushrooms, something stronger in flavour than regular white mushrooms(champignon), like portobello or ideally, porcini or tartufo(they are expensive but a little will go a long way...), also chopped prosciuto or speck.

RDG, what is black butter?

You can also choose to do some some fish ravioli: mince some fillet of codfish, mixed with little octopusses an mussels, just a bit of cream and egg white. If you like, some parsley and pinoli.

Beurre Noir: French for black butter. Butter cooked to a dark brown, not black; Traditionally flavored with capers and an acid such as lemon or vinegar.

wow... I never cooked butter until it got so darkened... sounds good though... gotta try that some time...

speaking of fish ravioli, we tried some tortellini with smoked salmon some time ago (store bought though...), and that was delicious!! I am sure that would be just as good with ravioli....

I had this valentine special recently at a very good Italian restaurant: Ravioli stuffed with smoked salmon and topped with creamy Champagne sauce. It was very good.

Chef Jimmy, your Beurre Noir sounds like the Beurre Noisette (Hazelnut Butter) that I know of. Maybe they're the same?

Urmaniac, if you want to try this, first clarify good quality butter and heat until dark brown. Very fragrant nutty flavor. Can pour over pan-fried fish fillets and such. Then top with chopped capers/parsley then sprinkle with lemon juice.
