This meat mixture has been in our Italian family for yrs. My Grandmother could cook up a storm.. She always made these the hard way, but when she got up in yrs. she came up with using the meat mixture in large shells.. This was a great idea being that we all do not have the time to be making that homemade ravioli dough.. The meat mixture and a homemade sauce still has the deliciousness of homemade.. I hope you enjoy this great Italian tradition, just made into a easier version.:)
