If your only experience with ravioli was something that came from a can, you are really missing out.

Easy homemade ravioli doesn’t need to involve a can opener, and the sky is the limit when it comes to ravioli filling (and sides!)

These classic pillows of dough are some of my favorite dumplings to eat from around the world… and really, the sky’s the limit, especially when you make them from scratch yourself.

Ricotta, herbs, ground meat, mushrooms, spinach and even lobster make delicious homemade ravioli fillings. Plus, when you make a ravioli recipe from scratch, you can create your own flavorful combinations with homemade sauces, whether you’re using tomatoes, wine or cream.

So, I decided to ask my food blogger friends for their best tasty and easy handmade ravioli recipes that you simply must try at home. You’ll find them all below. It’s time to raviol-eat! (Sorry – I promise no more ravioli puns after this).

PS: Be sure to check out the dessert ravioli recipes we’ve included at the bottom of this list. You won’t regret it.
