Ravioli

Ravioli are Italian-style dumplings that taste great whether they're filled with ricotta cheese or butternut squash. One of our favorite dishes is this oversize ravioli stuffed with ricotta and a whole egg. Homemade pasta dough gets cut and delicately filled with a cheesy mixture of feta, Parmesan and ricotta and an egg yolk. Serve with a simple tomato sauce, torn basil and shaved pecorino cheese—the soft yolk will spill out when you cut into the raviolo, thickening the sauce. For something a little simpler, try using wonton wrappers to make your own ravioli. We like to use a filling of goat cheese, ricotta, lemon zest and cilantro, and then fry the ravioli until they're crispy. Serve with marinara sauce for a tasty appetizer or side dish.

Pick your favorite store-bought refrigerated ravioli for this iconic Italian-American recipe, which transforms the stuffed pasta into a crunchy and super-satisfying appetizer. Breading the ravioli with panko and Parmesan helps them form a crispy shell when fried, and a gently garlicky marinara sauce is the perfect partner for dipping. To add an extra layer of flavor and texture, use the same oil to fry up rosemary and sage leaves, too.
Spinach and Prosciutto Ravioli
As a stuffing for her supple ravioli, Missy Robbins, chef at Lilia in Brooklyn, mixes spinach and prosciutto with two cheeses. Her ravioli can be made a month ahead of time—freeze them in a single layer; when they are solid, they can be combined in a large resealable plastic bag. The bright acidity and bubbles of a Franciacorta like Ronco Calino Brut amplify the nutty brown butter notes in the pasta.
