Bumping it up. So many great cooks here are making homemade pasta, & we have discussed all the methods/apparatuses used for making pasta... so do tell, what are your favorite recipe fillings... lasagna, ravioli, potstickers, manicotti, etc. Saucy recipes are appreciated too.

Classic Lasagna in my household goes something like this:

2 lbs. ground beef, browned
1/2 lb. medium cheddar cheese, shredded
1/2 lb. mozarella or muenster cheese, shredded (depends on my mood)
16 oz. container, large-curd cottage cheese
2 cans sliced black olives
1 yellow onion, diced
3 - 12 oz. cans tomato sauce
1 - 12 oz. can tomato paste
16 oz. sliced mushrooms
2 tbs. EVOO
3 large cloves garlic, minced
1 & 1/2 tsp. dried oregano
1/2 tsp. ground thyme
1/2 tsp. ground rosemary
1 tsp. sweet basil
3 bay leaves
2 packages whole wheat lasagna noodles

Lightly brown the mushrooms, garlic and onions in the olive oil over medium heat in a three quart sauce pan. Add the tomatoe sauce and herbs. Simmer for about 20 minutes while you grate the cheeses and open the olives, get your lasagna pan out, etc.

While the sauce is cooking, place the noodles into a large pot and cook for about 7 minutes. Then drain and cool.

When the sauce is done, ladle enough of it, without the mushrooms, into the lasagna pan to cover the bottom. Place enough noodles on the pan bottom to cover. Spoon on sauce to cover, followed by an even sprinkling of cheeses, including the cottage cheese, and black olives. Try to get the chunky parts evenly distributed. Lay on more noodles and repeat. Finish with a layer of noodles, tomato sauce with no chunks, and a sprinkling of the remaining cheese.

Of course you can substitute Italian sausage for the ground beef, and ricotta for the cottage cheese. You can do it any way you like. But this is our favorite lasagna recipe. With my pan, I can go five layers thick.

Another favorite filling is Butternut Squash and Proscuitto with a sage butter sauce.

It is TDF!

Alexa, here is one I posted a while ago:

Butternut Squash Filled Ravioli w Light Pesto Cream Sauce
Serving Size : 6

- 1 butternut squash
- 2 tablespoons Light Olive Oil
- 1 medium yellow onion, diced
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/2 cup ricotta cheese
- 1/4 cup fresh basil leaves, minced
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- 12 ounces wonton wrappers
- 3 tablespoons cornstarch
- 3 tablespoons cold water
- Light Pesto Cream Sauce (see recipe below)
- Fresh grated Parmesan cheese, for garnish
- Fresh diced tomato, for garnish

- For Light Pesto Cream Sauce:
- 1 cup tightly packed fresh basil leaves
- 1/4 cup pine nuts, toasted
- 2 cloves garlic
- 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 cup Mild Olive Oil
- 1/3 cup half-and-half

Preheat oven to 400°F. Cut squash in half; remove seeds and brush the interior with olive oil. Place squash cut side down in pan brushed with additional olive oil. Bake, uncovered for 40 minutes or until fork tender. Cool.

Meanwhile, in skillet, heat light olive oil. Add onion and garlic. Sauté until softened. Transfer onion mixture to a large bowl. Scoop squash from skin and place in bowl with onion and garlic. Stir in ricotta cheese, basil, salt and pepper. Mash until you have a coarse paste.

For each ravioli, place a wonton wrapper onto a lighly floured surface. Spoon a small amount of filling (about 1 1/2 teaspoons) onto the center of the wrapper. Lightly wet the edges of the wrapper with the cornstarch mixture. Lay a second wonton skin over the filling and carefully press edges to seal. Trim edges with a ravioli cutter or a pastry wheel. Repeat with remaining wonton wrappers.

Carefully place ravioli (one at a time) in a large pot of boiling, salted water. Cook and stir gently for about 5 minutes or until cooked through. Remove cooked ravioli with a slotted spoon and place on a warm platter. Serve with Light Pesto Cream Sauce (recipe follows).


For Light Pesto Cream Sauce: In work bowl of food process or blender, process basil, pine nuts, garlic, cheese and salt to form a paste. With the machine running, gradually add oil in a steady stream until evenly blended. Place pesto mixture into a small saucepan. Heat until warmed through. Stir in half-and-half until smooth and warmed through. Serve sauce over ravioli. Garnish, if desired, with fresh grated Parmesan cheese and diced tomatoes.

Wow Mish! That sounds great!

I have a jar of sun dried tomato pesto that someone gave me (homemade) and I bet it would be great used as a sauce with cream too!

I'm feeling the need for ravioli!

Sun-dried tomato pesto is good right out of the jar (So far I've only had a bagel all day. Can you tell?) I recently posted a bunch of pesto recipes around here somewhere - artichoke/lemon, etc. Great idea, Alexa. Thank you.
