Fresh, Homemade Ravioli In 15 Minutes- I Promise

Family Favorites


I think I first started making these in the mid-80's. I live in a region that has incredible Italian heritage (i.e. amazing food!) But some of the recipes are very labor intensive. So, I found a method where I could get the same taste without having to make my own pasta dough. Don't get me wrong... I love making my own pasta. But, it takes time... lots of time.

For a lighter Italian meal, give these a try... you'll be glad you did!

How to Make Fresh, Homemade Ravioli In 15 Minutes- I Promise


  1. Combine all filling ingredients and set aside.
  2. Lay 8-10 wonton wrappers out in front of you. Place 1/2-1 tablespoon of filling in a mound in the center. Brush egg wash around edges. Cover with 8-10 more wonton wrappers. Gently press out air bubbles and firmly seal edges with your fingers. Place on floured cookie sheet and continue until you have used all of the filling.
  3. Bring Large pot of salted water to a boil. Lower heat to a simmer and drop in 12-15 ravioli at a time. Cook gently for 2-3 minutes. (They will usually float to the surface.) Drain. Continue to cook in batches.
  4. Serve with your favorite tomato sauce, alfredo sauce or garlic browned butter and freshly grated Romano cheese and freshly chopped Italian parsley to garnish.
