Easy home made ravioli
Fresh, or dried lasagna noodles
1/2 lb. ground beef
1/2 lb. bulk Italian sausage(hot, or sweet, your choice)
1 tsp. dried oregano
1/2 cup fresh basil. divided
1 cup cottage cheese (or ricotta)
1/4 cup Parmigiana Reggiano, grated
1/2 tsp. dried thyme
1/4 tsp. ground rosemary
1 egg
2 tbs. milk

Parboil noodles until al dente in salted water. Drain and lay out on parchment paper, or Silpat mats. Brown meat, and drain. Add herbs, and spices. Stir, and add cheeses. Stir well to combine. Remove from heat and let cool to room temp (about ten minutes).

Brush noodles with egg wash made from the milk and egg. Spoon meat/cheese mixture in tsp. size mounds about an inch apart on half of the noodles. Place the other noodles on top. Press the edges together, removing as much air as possible. Cut between the mounds to make the ravioli pillows. Place onto a parchment lined baking sheet and place into a 325' F oven and bake for 10 minutes to set the egg wash and seal the raviolis. Serve with favorite pasta sauce, with fresh basil leaves on top.

Tip, if you add Sunday gravy, or a good marinara to the meat/cheese mixture, this is a great filling for lasagna, manicotti, jumbo shells, etc.
